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/online/academics under the Degrees tab. Off-campus students have 5 years in which to fulfill degree requirements.
