Program Format:

New students are accepted into the Cybersecurity program every eight weeks. Each term is divided into seven-weeks of instruction followed by a rest week. Students seeking full-time status will take two or more classes each term. Students who enroll full-time for all six sub-terms may earn 36 or more hours of credit toward their degree each academic year.

The BS in Cybersecurity requires completing general education credits, elective credits and more focused credits in Cybersecurity.

Transfer credit:

There are multiple ways to transfer credit to McMurry University. Courses eligible for transfer credit are those courses generally considered to be academic in nature; taken for college credit (not remedial or taken specifically for athletic participation) with a grade of at least C; and from a regionally accredited institution. Course credit can also be awarded through examination, such as CLEP or departmental examinations.

Your academic advisor will be able to review the results of your transcript evaluation with you.
