Degree Options

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Designated Programs

Our BAAS-IT, BBA-CIS, BS-CIS, and MS-IS programs are all designated as STEM programs as defined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This designation has a direct impact on international students interested in these programs as it allows those with F-1 visas to remain in the United States after graduation for an additional 24 months under the optional practical training STEM extension. This extension makes it possible for students to undertake practical training for a total of 36 months.
