Computer Science Curriculum/Checklist


For the bachelor of science in Computer Science, a student must:

  1. Take all of the courses listed in the Computer Science curriculum checklist; 
  2. Have a departmental grade point average of at least 2.00 in all CSC courses 300 level or higher. 
  3. All baccalaureate degrees must satisfy the general education requirements mandated by the Board of Regents. Please see the General Education Requirements  in this catalog. 
  4. Course requirements for the program also include the total number of credits per course. Any student that has an approved course for transfer will fulfill the course requirement, but if the transferred course does not meet the total credit hour requirement then the program committee will decide on the proper accommodation for meeting the total credit hour requirement. Students should consult with their advisor to get clarification on the necessary accommodation. 

Students are responsible for checking with their advisors for any program modifications that may occur after the publication of this catalog
