Intro to Cybersecurity - Upper level
#1
Hi, 

Does any one know if there is Intro to Cyber Security - upper level available? The one mentioned on the Wiki from TEEX is lower level and not accepted for master level. 

Thanks !

Upper level? Or "Master" level (as in graduate degree level)?

You're not going to find any ACE/NCCRS alt-credit at the graduate level for this (or for almost any other course, for that matter)

One thing to explore, if you have background in the field -- If this is for PUG, I believe they take the CISSP for graduate credit.

I believe for master (graduate level) only upper level credit accepted from ACE. 
This what I was informed by Purdue.

You might want clarification from PUG. I would be very surprised if a school accepts upper level work for the graduate level. "upper level" refers to upper level undergraduate work (think 300/400 level courses), not master degree level (commonly 500/600 level courses). ACE/NCCRS does not generally have masters level work, with some very limited exceptions. None in Cybersecurity, unfortunately.

I'll definitely echo what JSD said, make sure to clarify what kind of courses they would accept for transfer at the graduate level, whether they would accept UL credits and if they would have to be RA or ACE. With that said, they do accept quite a few certifications for transfer and last I checked, you could transfer in about half of the cybersecurity masters or IT masters that way, especially with a CISSP or CISM. Those certs can play a major role in helping your career beyond just college credits and many employers will pay for them.
