Degrees from the College of Information Technology incorporate up to seven respected industry certifications. Below are admissions requirements specific
to College of Information Technology programs that are in addition to WGU’s
general admissions requirements.
We require these prerequisites because our research has determined that students entering these programs need to have demonstrated strong IT abilities in order to handle the rigors of a difficult IT curriculum.
Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally or nationally accredited college or university. Applicants must also submit a resume showing at least three years of significant professional experience.
Below is the list of steps and their respective deadlines required for enrollment

once you’re ready. The application fee is $65. You can pay online using a credit
card or electronic debit or by mailing a check or money order.
