We offer the MS in IA, the ME in IA, and the Certificate in IA via distance education (see www.eol.iastate.edu).
Currently Computer Engineering is the only home department to offer a distance education version of the MS and ME degrees in Informance Assurance. The degree requirements are the same as the for on-campus and off-campus students for the MS degree. The Certificate in IA is offered by the Information Program and student should select Information Assurance (INFAS) as their home department.
The admission requirements are the same for students entering the program without work experience. For students with work experience the GRE and GPA minimum may be waived. Students with an undergraduate degree in a non computing field that have at least 5 years of work experience in the IT field can be admitted to the Masters degree program after successfully completing the gradaute certificate.
PLEASE NOTE: You can only take up to 9 credits as a non-degree seeking student (i.e. without applying to ISU). Any credits earned after that will not transfer into the degree program. You need to apply to the degree program (MS, ME, Cert) before you take more than 9 credits. Admission and application procedurees can be found on the ISU Admissions website .
