The graduate school at Hood College has a relatively new MS in CS, as 
well as an MS in IT.  They have a prerequisites list that you need to 
take if you have a degree in other fields and they seem very considerate 
of varying academic backgrounds and also very considerate of full-time 
working people taking a graduate degree at night.  I'm in my second 
class in the MS program and it's been good so far.
