New Online Application for Fall 2008 Admissions

October 16, 2007

This year the Information Networking Institute (INI) is launching a new online application form for fall 2008 admissions. The new form will allow applicants to submit recommendations, fee payments and other required application documents and materials online, as well as to track their application submission online.

Applicants may use the form to apply to multiple INI programs: M.S. in Information Networking (MSIN); M.S. in Information Security Technology & Management (MSISTM) as well as to the Athens MSIN program, and the two new programs in Portugal, Lisbon MSIT-IS and Aveiro MSIN.

Applications to the INI program in Japan, Kobe MSIT-IS, must be completed in hard copy only.

The online form is accessible through both the INI and College of Engineering, Carnegie Institute of Technology (CIT), Web sites. The form consists of a main section, under which applicants will create an online profile, and supplemental sections where you will enter information relevant to the program you seek to enter. You will select your program of choice in the main section of the form.

Please note that you may not apply to more than one Carnegie Mellon department per application. Applicants who wish to apply to the INI and ECE for instance, must complete a separate form for each and pay a separate application fee as well.

Though applicants will be able to upload a copy of their university transcripts, please note that the INI will still require all applicants to supply hard copy originals of their official undergraduate transcripts as well as transcripts for all programs attended whether a degree was earned or not. See Academic Programs for detailed application guidelines.

Applicants who do not wish to pay the application fee online should select “Pay by Check.”

All instructions for using the form are provided in the online document. However, if you have any questions, feel free to contact the INI admissions office for assistance.

You can find links to the online form on the front page of the INI Web site and under Academic Programs, just select your program of choice.
