The admissions process for each undergraduate major varies from program to program, but admissions for our main bachelor of science in computer science are handled through Carnegie Mellon's central Office of Undergraduate Admission. Learn more on our Undergraduate Admissions page.
The Computer Science Department offers a main M.S. in Computer Science, and applications for that program are submitted online by mid-December for fall admission the following year. Other master's programs available to CSD students have their own admissions processes. Learn more about our admissions requirements and processes here.
The Ph.D. in CS program uses the School of Computer Science online application for admissions. Applications are due in December for admittance the following fall. Students cannot begin in the spring. For more on how to apply, visit our Doctoral Admissions page.
