Department of Computer Science
College of Natural Sciences
*Plans are in progress to consolidate the College of Humanities and Fine Arts and the College of Natural Sciences by June 30, 2011.
Graduate Majors (M.S.)
- Undergraduate students who have been admitted to the university provisionally because of non-satisfaction of the high school mathematics requirements may not enroll in any computer science credit course before this requirement has been met.
- All courses counting toward a major or minor in the Department of Computer Science must be passed with a grade of C- or better.
- Prerequisite courses in the Department of Computer Science must be passed with a grade of C before taking a subsequent course.
- All majors in the Department of Computer Science except Bioinformatics require a project course (marked with asterisk in the degree statements). The course used to meet this requirement is to be taken in the area of specialization, i.e., an area in which at least three courses are taken.
- All courses in a prerequisite chain to a course are considered regressive to it - students may not take them for credit after passing the later course. Additionally, 810:030 and 810:036 are regressive to 810:052 and any course having it as prerequisite.
- All computer science majors must complete the department's core assessment exam before enrolling in any 100-level course/course numbered 2420 or above required for their major.
- All computer science majors must complete the department's program assessment exam before graduating.
