The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of KU's School of Engineering introduced its exciting new undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT), for the KU Edwards Campus in 2012 to address the IT needs of industrial and governmental organizations in Johnson Country and the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.

The BSIT program focuses on technology, managerial, and administrative sides of information technology and its curriculum offers courses in computer information security, systems administration, Web systems and technologies, information security management, software development, computer networks, database design, human-computer interaction, project management, system architecture and integration, operating systems, social and professional issues in IT, network security, and such.

The BSIT program was developed in cooperation with the Johnson County Community College (JCCC) and with a unique partnership with the Johnson Country Education Research Triangle (JCERT). The joint goal is to create economic stimulus and a higher quality of life in Johnson County through new facilities and educational opportunities.

The BSIT program is a 122-credit hour program, of which at least 60 credit hours must be completed at KU. The BSIT program is designed to allow students to finish their degree at their own pace.  Some students would like to finish the program in four years, while others may need more time.

Freshmen must:
1. Provide evidence of high school graduation with a curriculum that would prepare you for university studies in your home country

Credentials and Requirements by Country for Freshman Addition to the College of LIberal Arts and Sciences

2. Have a GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale;

3. Submit English proficiency test scores (used to estimate students' placement in appropriate level of ESL course, as needed. All international students are screened after arrival on campus and prior to enrollment by the KU Applied English Center).

The University of Kansas will accept both the new SAT and the old SAT. We will use concordance tables to compare your scores and determine your highest scores on either the new SAT or the old SAT. At this time, any SAT scores listed are based on the new SAT (after March 2016).  

In addition to transcripts or marksheets, you must present an official diploma or graduation certificate, official examination results, or other proof of graduation particular to your country.  We use equivalent admission criteria for applicants from all countries.  Meeting the minimum grade point average does not guarantee admission.

KU offers a few partial scholarships for qualified, new international freshmen and transfer students admitted for fall semester. To be considered for a scholarship, you must complete an online fall semester application by Jan. 15.

The Office of International Recruitment and Undergraduate Admissions (IRUA) screens candidates for a limited number of admissions scholarships. Awards are only offered to degree-seeking undergraduates whose first KU semester is the fall semester. KU does not offer international student scholarships based on financial need. International undergraduate scholarships do not cover all expenses. Prior to issuance of the SEVIS document, students requesting F-1 or J-1 status must submit proof of financial support for the first year of study.
