Admission to the degree program is competitive and is based on a review of:
- College transcripts
- Personal Statement
- Letters of Recommendation
- Documentation of work experience
- IT certifications
Applicants for admission must have earned a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited institution with a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0.

Admission as a non-degree student follows the university policy set forth in the Graduate Bulletin.
International applicants are required to take the GRE and score a minimum of 151 quantitative, 144 verbal and 2.5 analytical writing. International applicants may also be required to submit a TOEFL score.
Students whose undergraduate degree is not in a computer-related area or who do not have significant experience or certifications in the information technology field will be assessed for prerequisite requirements and given advisement on prerequisite coursework.
Students entering the Master of Information Technology and Management degree program may be required to take placement examinations based on an evaluation of their background and their undergraduate degree program.
Students who are not required to complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) but have very low scores on the GRE Verbal (generally 10th percentile or lower) may be required to complete the IIT English Proficiency Review (EPR) Essay Examination. If students cannot pass this examination they will be required to enroll in ENG 053 and retake the EPR Essay Exam at course completion.
