- All prerequisite courses must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better.
- Credits older than 10 years must be approved by the CSIS Department Chair before being allowed to count towards the degree due to the rapid change in the industry.
- Computer Science majors must take the approved comprehensive national examination in computer science during their senior year, passing with a score in at least the 25th percentile. This test is generally taken during CS 4800 - CS Capstone Project .
- Computer Science is recommended for students who seek careers in computer science or who wish to pursue graduation education.
The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems strongly recommends that students complete the following courses as part of their General Education requirements, as they are prerequisites for required major courses. Students who do not complete these courses as part of General Education can potentially add additional credits and time to their degree.
* Note: Students who are not prepared for this math course may need additional math credits/preparation. Please consult your Student Success Advisor for more information.
General Education Requirement (31-36 Credits)
See General Education for course options.
- Core Course Requirements 12-13 Credits
- Knowledge Area Requirements 19-23 Credits
Experiential Education University Requirement - EDGE Program (3 Credits)
See Experiential Education for more information.
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree Requirement (12 Credits*)
- Bachelor of Science Degree - Math or Science minimum requirement 12 Credits
* Note: Most or all of the B.S. requirements may be met by fulfilling the General Education Core and Knowledge Areas. Because of this, these credits are typically not counted in the degree total at the bottom of page. Transfer students not majoring in a math or science field may need additional math/science courses to reach the minimum 12 credits. Consult your Student Success Advisor for details.
