Admission into the CCSS is automatic to students who are admitted into other degree programs within ECS and JSOM. In this way, the specialized tracks in the CCSS can serve as concentrations in other degree programs.
Qualifications, according to undergraduate degree and background courses, determines which track is appropriate.
For non-traditional students interested only in the Certificate, and not an entire MS degree, the program is targeted to corporate employees with an appropriate undergraduate degree. Admission requirements would be identical to those for the other graduate degree programs at UT Dallas in ECS and JSOM, except that no GRE/GMAT scores would be required. For such students, admission as “non-degree seeking” would be the path toward obtaining the Certificate.
