The CIT online major (reference number 555) requires 120 credit hours and leads to a Bachelor of Science degree. No minor or second major is required. Enrollment in the CIT program is limited and based on student qualifications. All CIT courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. The program requires 36/60 hours of upper-division CIT coursework. Electives should be selected consistent with WKU's degree requirements including:
WKU requirements for completion of a bachelor's in computer information technology depends on whether you are classified as a 2+2 student or non 2+2 student. 2+2 Students are those who transfer to WKU with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in a technology subject area from a regionally accredited school. There are no complicated articulation agreements, and no awkward lists of classes that transfer. Non 2+2 Students are those who do not transfer to WKU with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) degree in a technology area. They may have no hours, some college hours or a degree in an unrelated field.
In addition to the program specific courses previously listed, students without an A.A. or A.S from a regionally accredited school must complete 39 additional hours as part of the Colonnade Program (formerly General Education). However, students who transfer to WKU with an earned associate degree from a regionally accredited school are considered General Education Certified and are not required to complete Colonnade requirements.
Please note the following as you plan your program of study:
Joint Undergraduate Masters Program (JUMP)For students interested in combining the CIT curriculum with studies in technology management, the Joint Undergraduate and Master's Degree Program (JUMP) provides the opportunity for academically outstanding CIT students to complete their combined online Bachelor of Science and online Master of Science in Engineering Technology Management (MSETM) degrees in as little as five years (much less for transfer students).This is an excellent opportunity for 2+2 transfer students who wish to follow a management track and obtain an advanced degree. Transfer (2+2) students can complete their Bachelor's degree with just 36 CIT course hours (as always), but up to 12 graduate hours will be dual-counted as CIT and MSETM hours (See Course List HERE). Thus, on graduation with the Bachelor's degree in CIT, students will only need 21 more hours to graduate with a Master's Degree in Engineering Technology Management (MSETM).
