Take 5 credits from the following courses.
Any 3000, 4000, or 5000 level engineering or computer science or information technology courses. No more than 1-credit of CSI 4950 (Internship) can be used to fulfill the professional electives requirement. Courses at the 5000-level require approval of the instructor.
No more than one of the following 2000 level courses:
Any math, science or engineering elective from the following:
Minimum credit hour requirements in mathematics and sciences
Students must complete all five required mathematics and statistics courses for a minimum of 15 credits. Students with fewer than 15 credits of required mathematics and statistics, for example due to transfers from another institution, must take additional courses to satisfy the requirement. Any additional course must be approved by a petition of exception.
Students must complete an approved science elective and an approved science elective with lab for a minimum of 6 credits. Students with fewer than 6 credits of sciences, for example due to transfers from another institution, must take additional courses to satisfy the requirements. Any additional course must be approved by a petition of exception.
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. At the time that major standing is approved, students with majors of Pre-Computer Science will have their major changed to Computer Science. Approval of both a major standing application and change of major to Computer Science is required prior to enrolling in any 3000- or higher-level courses.
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, an approved science elective, and an approved science elective with lab.
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.
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.
Students who have questions about petition of exception, transfer credit, academic standing, major standing, or any other aspects of their degree programs should consult an academic adviser and other relevant sections of the undergraduate catalog.
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 the professional courses at most two different courses may be repeated, a total of three attempts per course is permitted, and at most two grades below C are permitted. A grade of C or better in CSI 4999 (Senior Capstone Project) must be received.
