Distance Learning (Off-Campus)

Application Deadlines:

July 1 for the fall semester (August-December)

November 1 for the spring semester (January-May)

Master’s level students who wish to enroll for courses at a distance (as off-campus students) may contact Purdue’s Engineering Professional Education Division (ProEd).

Working professionals with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science or Engineering who wish to earn a non-thesis online MS in CS via distance learning should apply directly to the Computer Science Department. They must follow our application steps and select the course delivery option "Distance (online or off-campus location)" in the application system. They are evaluated for admission on the same criteria as applicants to our on-campus program.

For students working toward a non-thesis online MS in CS, the “academic home” will be the Computer Science Department as the student will be following the CS Master’s Curriculum. However, the on-line course offering is more limited than the on-campus offering.

Questions regarding course selection and registration pins shoud be directed to grad-info@cs.purdue.edu.

Engineering Professional Education is responsible for all other registration aspects and delivery of the course material to the distance learning student.  Questions concerning registration, site issues, and exam proctoring, will be directed to ProEd
