The Illinois Internet Computer Science (I2CS) Program offers the on-campus Masters of Computer Science (MCS) degree completely online. The MCS degree is a professional non-thesis degree requiring 36 hours of course work.
The online option allows individuals to earn an MCS degree from a leader in information technology entirely online with no required campus visits. All students receive the same lectures, class assignments, exams, and projects as on-campus students.
Students in the online MCS degree program are awarded the exact same diploma that they would receive were they on campus. The degree requirements are the same as for the on-campus MCS program and can be found at http://cs.illinois.edu/prospective-students/graduate-students/professional-masters-mcs/professional-masters-mcs-degree-requ . Off-campus students have 5 years in which to fulfill degree requirements.

Maryland Residents:

The State of Maryland is currently taking steps to authorize institutions in certain other states, including Illinois, to offer online distance education programs and courses to students residing in Maryland. That authorization is expected to be completed by January 1, 2016. Students whose resident address is in Maryland are welcome to apply to University of Illinois online courses and programs, but will be able to begin taking courses only after the State of Maryland completes its authorization process.
