The Master of Science in Information Technology and Administrative Management is an exciting new program and here you can find the answers to many of the most common questions. We update this page regularly as information becomes available.
Admission & Application Questions
Tuition and Financial Aid
You can use the degree in whichever way you want to because it is a broad content degree that prepares you for an entry or mid-level management position in any size business. We teach the soft skills and conceptual skills required of leaders and managers. Those skills include conflict resolution, communication, project management, etc. plus the foundation of technical skills that are within all businesses.
Fortunately most areas of study are related to this program with the specialization in Administrative Management that we offer. You would need to meet the requirements that graduate studies has for the application.
Yes, this program is offered 100% on-line and 100% in-class.
|The application requirements are:|
1. Application ($50.00 fee/can apply online: https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=cwugrad) - When applying online you must use a credit card to pay the $50 application fee. Your application will be denied indefinitely if you use a fraudulent credit card. Please ensure you use a valid credit card to pay your application fee.2. Statement of Educational and Professional Objectives (may be submitted with your online application; It should be a clear, informative letter about your interest in graduate study, research interests, pertinent work experience, and career goals)
3. Three letters of recommendation (May be submitted online with your application by supplying contact information for your three recommenders. These recommenders will receive an automatic email notifying them of your request to complete a recommendation. If your recommender prefers to send a letter by mail, forms can be found here:http://www.cwu.edu/masters/applying-cwu-graduate-school).4. Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended. If the transcripts are from CWU, they do not need to be resubmitted.
5. 3.0 GPA or above on your last 90 quarter credits/60 semester credits
6. There are no GRE or GMAT requirements.
|The statement of educational and professional objectives is one of the most important deciding factors for entrance into the MS-ITAM program. One website that may help you guide your organization of the letter is:|
Your statement should portray you as:
No, they are not.
No. But you do have the option of submitting an official transcript up to the point you are at currently and then resubmitting your official transcript after graduation. Your application status would be pending on the submission of the final official transcript.
A writing sample is not required.
We are accepting applicants on a rolling basis until the program is filled for Fall quarter. Early applications are highly encouraged.
Yes, the Program currently is on a first come first serve basis. It's a good idea to get your application in sooner than later.
The final application form will have that option, but that will be a few more days while it gets updated. Right now students can apply under the Individual Studies option on the application form, but they should state in their letter what modality there are interested in. We will be following up with applicants to determine their preferred modality once their application is complete.
How do I indicate my preference for the online cohort or in-class cohort on my application?
E-mailing email@example.com is sufficient in letting the department know of your preference.
If you don’t see the major listed, use INSTMSG.
Graduate Studies will forward your completed application to ITAM. Once ITAM has your application, it takes 2-4 weeks.
You will just need to provide an updated transcript after you complete your internship.
The coursework is more intensive and includes more writing since it is on the Master's level.
The written project is integrated through all of the course work.
Boot Camp is a course geared towards supplying the student with information they need to succeed in the program.
It is best to pay full price and be treated like a student. This will allow you to enroll as a regular student and better ensure you get the classes you need, when you need them. Gaining access to the classes you need in a timely fashion will allow you a greater opportunity to finish within the year. It is also important to note that using the employee tuition waiver limits you to 8 credits per quarter and gives you last priority for enrollment. We expect many state employees will seek the degree using waivers, so if you do the same, you will be in competition with many others. We are also expecting to fill the cohort with non-waiver students, so those using the waivers may have a difficult time getting into classes; although we hope to accommodate as many students as possible.
There are no classes at centers planned at this time.
You can transfer if there are openings, but we can’t guarantee there will be openings.
Possibly. We would need to see an unofficial transcript or syllabus for review.
Graduate faculty will include Drs. Trumpy, Takei, Dias Portelas, Lupton, N., Wang and new faculty members.
ITAM students do not get first priority. It is a competitive admission process.
Only the Requirements of Graduate Studies.
Students may be able to go part-time, but it will take significantly longer since classes are only offered one time per year. So it could take 2-3 years to complete the program.
Approximately $16,000 for the program for in-state students if they go full-time and complete it in one year. This is approximate depending on course fees and textbooks. Please visit http://www.cwu.edu/registrar/tuition for additional information.
It is only for dependents. Please see
No, if your transcripts are from CWU, the official transcript will be sent to Graduate Studies electronically.
Because of the Administrative Management specialization, this program applies to most fields.
Class times have not been established at this point. Please check back for class times at the end of June.
There are no weekend classes. You have the option of attending this program 100% on-line.
CWU requires students to come from an accredited institution.
Because you have already had your transcript evaluated, it would not need to be evaluated again by our CWU evaluator. The department you are applying to will evaluate the transcript after you have applied for admission through Graduate Studies.
August 1st is the date of open enrollment and that is when you will be able to register. We will be sending an email to everyone letting you know which classes and sections to register for about a week before this.
