Well, it's official "official". I start my WGU MSCSIA in December
#1
After 6 months of much debate and second guessing, I finally was accepted and "Cleared to Start" the MSCSIA program at WGU on 12/1.  I did not come from a Cybersecurity undergraduate program, but have spent a lot of years in I.T. doing C.J.I.S. and SOC-2 \SAS70 and FedRamp compliance.  Apparently, my resume' review was sufficient enough to admit me to the program.

I initially had the desire to accelerate and try a one term completion, but I have decided to shoot for two terms.  After this is complete, I have my eye on an Aviation Cybersecurity Grad program at Embry-Riddle, which is very close to me locally.

Strange that I joined this forum with only the intent of finding out more about completing my Bachelor.  Now, after two Associates and a Bachelor, here I am moving into a Grad program.

Am I the only one that finds this process sort of addicting and much more satisfying than sitting in front of the TV every night?

Nope :-P

Definitely not the only one! Smile

I went from zero degrees to three degrees awarded in 2019 and still want more. I need to take a short break after the MBA, but I hope to begin a second master's degree or a doctorate degree in 2020 or 2021.

Good luck with the MSCSIA.
