To enroll in 3000- or higher level courses and to become candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in Information Technology, students must gain major standing. An application for major standing should be submitted prior to intended enrollment in 3000- or higher level courses. Forms may be obtained from the SECS Undergraduate Advising Office or from the SECS website.
To gain major standing Information Technology, students must:
A) have an average GPA of 2.0 in the following mathematics and science courses: Either MTH 1222 or MTH 1554 , STA 2221 , APM 1663 , and approved science elective.
B) have an average GPA of 2.0 in the following information technology core courses: CSI 1200 , CSI 1310 , CSI 2300 , CSI 2470 , CSI 2520 , and CSI 2999 .
C) have no more than two grades below C in the courses listed in A and B above.
D) have not attempted any course listed in A and B above more than three times. Students may petition to repeat a course a fourth time.

Conditional major standing may be granted in the semester in which the student will complete requirements A and B above.
In addition to previously stated requirements, satisfactory completion of the program requires an average grade of at least C within each group: namely, mathematics and sciences, core subjects and professional subjects. Within professional subjects, at most two grades below C are permitted, at most two different courses may be repeated and a total of three attempts is permitted.
Sample information technology schedule
Students entering the School of Engineering and Computer Science with the required background may follow a schedule such as the one indicated below. However, students will need additional time to complete the program if they do not have the required background upon entrance to the program.
