The General Education Requirements are comprised of three parts: Foundations, Explorations, and Integration. In addition, U.S. Diversity requirements must also be met. For details, refer to the General Education section of the catalog. In order to satisfy both general education and other program requirements, in some of the general education areas students should select from the courses listed below.
To enroll in 3000- or higher level courses and to become candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in Computer Science, 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 in Computer Science, students must:
A) have an average GPA of 2.0 in the following mathematics and science courses: MTH 1554 , MTH 1555 , MTH 2775 , APM 2663 , PHY 1510 , and PHY 1620 .
B) have an average GPA of 2.0 in the following computer science core courses: CSI 1420 , CSI 2300 , CSI 2310 , CSI 2470 , 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.
E) have not repeated more than three different courses listed in A and B. Courses in which a W (withdrawal) grade is recorded will not be counted.
Conditional major standing may be granted in the semester in which the student will complete requirements A and B above.
Satisfactory completion of the program requires an average grade of at least 2.0 within each group: mathematics and sciences, computer science core, and professional courses (including required professional subjects, professional electives, and professional track). Within professional courses at most two grades below C are permitted, at most two different courses may be repeated, and a total of three attempts per course is permitted.
Sample computer science 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.
