Graduate Program

Transferring from Another Rensselaer Degree Program

Applicants to the Computer Science graduate degree programs from other graduate degree programs at Rensselaer must meet the same requirements as applicants from outside Rensselaer. Admission is extremely competitive and emphasizes research.

Whether you are applying from another department, from the Computer Science program on the Hartford campus, from our MS program to our PhD program, or from our coterminal program to our regular MS program, you must apply through the Admissions office. Admissions will have your previously submitted transcripts and test scores added to your new application. To supplement the documents already on file, you must submit two new recommendations and a new statement of background and goals which includes information on which research group you wish to join. You must also submit GRE General test scores if none are already on file. The only exception is that students switching from the coterminal program to the regular MS program may request a GRE waiver.
