Online Degree Completion

Program
Requirements

Complete admission and program requirements are found in the University Catalog.

The Bachelor of Science in software engineering can be completed fully online while maintaining your work and family life. There is no difference in how our online or face-to-face degrees appear on your transcript or diploma. You can complete your degree through full-time study, or you can take courses one or two at a time, or even skip a term… whatever works for you.

No matter where you are currently on the path to a degree in software engineering, we want to help.  Students with suitable work experience may be awarded credit for these experiences.

To begin evaluation of any and all transfer credits or to consult a faculty adviser regarding your particular needs, contact the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology.

The online degree completion program is well-suited for:

Working adults with two-year degrees in IT fields

Background and foundational courses required for the bachelor's degree in software engineering are usually covered in many community and technical colleges as part of their IT related degree programs. These programs could have different titles such as computer science, programming, information technology, information systems, among others.

Due to the varying nature of these programs, they differ in the number of courses that could be transferred into the software engineering program. Additionally, different 2-year  colleges may offer the same degree name, but their programs may be different.  The software engineering faculty advisers will be offering a pre-admission advice regarding which courses are transferable.

Potential students could test out of some of courses based on their work experience.

Adults having completed a four-year degree in an IT field, looking to build formal credentials

Typically, this group of students might have the fastest way to complete the software engineering degree.

The variation in nature among these degrees might make one of them a faster track than the other. For example, a computer science student could find it faster to finish the software engineering degree compared to an information system student.

Adults having completed a four-year degree in non-IT fields, but with IT background

These students usually have all of their liberal education courses covered under their previous degree. However, they have less formal education in IT.

Students will be advised about which software engineering courses that they could test out off based on their work experience.  

The program may require more than two years or more than 60 credits to complete depending on the technical background a student possesses.
