Admissions Types

Regular Admission

Candidates who meet our admissions criteria including an undergraduate or graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher from an accredited university will be granted admission to the MIT program as a Regular Status student with no restrictions. Academic progress requires that students maintain a 3.0 or better cumulative GPA to maintain Regular Status.

Provisional Admission

Candidates who meet our admissions criteria but whose undergraduate or graduate GPA is below the minimum of 3.0, but is above 2.75, as required by the Graduate School at Virginia Tech may qualify for provisional admission. The applicant must demonstrate other experience or qualifications that show the potential to undertake graduate study. Upon successful completion of four foundation courses (earning a B or better in each course) the student is changed to Regular Status.

Commonwealth Status

Candidates who meet our admissions criteria, but whose undergraduate and/or graduate GPA falls below a 2.75 may qualify for admission as a Commonwealth Campus student. Commonwealth Campus admittance into the Master of Information Technology Program is limited, and granted at the discretion of the Program Director upon review for regular admission. A Commonwealth Campus student will be allowed to take four foundation courses and upon successful completion (earning a B or better in each course) the student will be invited to reapply for Regular Admission. While in Commonwealth status, a student is ineligible for Financial Aid.
