Notes:


For the bachelor of science in Computer Science, a student must have a departmental grade point average of at least 2.00 in all CSC courses 300 level or higher.

Course requirements for the program also include the total number of credits per course. To meet the 88 required credits of the major, 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.
