You need 16 years of education.
12 + 4 years / 12 + 5 (in case of MCA / MSc )
s'd also be fine.
This is the first requirement for doing a MS in any field.

hi kajol,
I w'd advise you to check out the college websites.
I don't intend to discourage you, but
I have this feeling that Grad admission requirements
requires you to have a 4 year professional degree.
Msc w'd do bcos my aunt did her MS after finishing her
Msc in Physics. check out any college websites to confirm this.
Eg:
www.utexas.edu www.tamu.edu
rgds,
karthik

hi :
if not a technical background ... then what ?
i told you i,am not from a science background but a literature student ( delhi university)
What i've found is if you are not from a tech background , you gotta complete a foundation course.
if this is not the case then tell me

Hi,
I think the elgibility criteria is 12 + 4 years of accredited education.
So Kajol, in your case, if you could provide the University with information that your Diploma's are from an accredited University it should be OK.
If you donot have 16 years of education (normally with BSc. graduates), then to make up for one year you should have substantial experience, which depends on the University.Heard it comes to about 5 years of relevant experience.
Also in Raghav's case, if you are a Literature student, you could consider to opt for a Masters in CS program.However, now-a-days to convince the Visa officers and Universities for change in stream is becoming continously difficult.
Thanks,
Sandeep

Raghav,
I am assuming that you have 12 + 4 years of education in the field not related to IT.
If that is the case, then you would need to take some experience in an IT firm.After you have acquired considerable experience (2-3 years) in this field, you may consider looking out for Graduate schools who consider participants with experience for the Masters program.You may/may not be required to take GRE/TOEFL depending on the requirements of the schoo.Once you get admission in any school (which is of repute), you chances of rejection by the Visa Officer is significantly reduced (note that you cannot totally eliminate it.This holds true for people who have a Bachelors in CS!).I would say student's (F-1) Visa now-a-days has a luck factor associated with it.
So keep working hard and pray that lady luck is with you

In glancing at MS programs in computer science, I've noticed that you can sometimes qualify for admission even if your bachelor's degree is in a different field by completing a preparatory program of designated computer science courses, even if you don't have substantial work experience in the field. The details vary from university to university, but as I recall, it amounts to about about a year of studies if done full time, although the courses are often offered in the evenings so they can be taken by people with regular jobs. As someone suggested, check the web pages of some universities. In addition, I suspect you will need the equivalent of a US bachelor's to enter an MS program at most places.
