Cyber Security Certificate Admission Guidelines
Priority Deadline: Dec. 1
After the priority deadline, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the program has reached capacity.
A completed application consists of the following documents:
- Application form
- Non-refundable fee of $50
- Official transcripts from each college or university attended
NOTE: Applicants who hold degrees or have earned credits from non-U.S. institutions (not study abroad programs) must have a course-by course evaluation and translation done by a Loyola recognized evaluation services agency. Loyola recommends World Education Services (www.wes.org).
- Resume or vitae
- Essay outlining your interest and goals in pursuing a graduate program
- TOEFL Score Report
Note: An official TOEFL score report is required if English is not your native language or if you have not completed a degree program taught in English. Scores cannot be more than two years old. Official scores must be mailed directly from the Educational Testing Service. Loyola's institution code is 5370.
Supplemental application materials should be forwarded directly to the Office of Graduate Admission via mail or email:
Loyola University Maryland
Graduate Admission Processing Center
P.O. Box 1447
Beltsville, MD 20704
It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that a completed application and all supplemental materials are received by the application deadline. Supplemental materials, once received, become the property of Loyola University Maryland and cannot be returned.
Applicants for admission must possess an undergraduate degree. Applicants will be evaluated based upon quantitative criteria consisting of prior academic achievement and professional experience, particularly noting a strong grade point average and quantitative background. In some cases, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) may be required. Admission to the Cyber Security Certificate program does not guarantee admission to the Professional's MBA which has separate entrance requirements; if an applicant becomes interested in enrolling in the Professional's MBA program, they will need to follow the GMAT requirements of that program. The Committee on Admission and Retention is the final arbiter. Applicants will be notified in writing of the admission decision.
Additional admission and program information is available online or by contacting the Office of Graduate Business Programs, 410-617-5067.
