Accreditation
  Financial Assistance
The MS in Computer Science program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), through Louisiana Tech University. Louisiana Tech has been an accredited member of SACS since 1927.   Preference for assistantship is given to students pursuing the thesis option. If a student has been given an assistantship on admission, such an assistantship may not be extended if the student has not had his/her thesis plan approved by a graduate advisor within three terms. During any term for which a student receives an assistantship, that student cannot exceed a six credit-hour course load without advisor approval.
