Graduate Admissions

For answers to our frequently asked questions, please view our Graduate Division’s FAQ.

Online applications for graduate admissions are accepted from September 5th to December 15th. All materials as outlined below should be submitted before the December 15th deadline.

You can still apply to ICS if your undergraduate degree is not in the same area as the graduate degree in which you are interested. However, it is helpful if you have taken courses in computer science and math, and/or have some related work experience.

ICS accepts applications for admission beginning in the Fall Quarter only.
