Sophomore Paper Information

[info for 2017-18]

The Computer Science Department offers majors, minors, honors majors, and honors minors.

To apply to the CS department:

1. 2018 Spring Computer Science meeting for sophomores will be held February 6, 2018 in Science Center 199 at 4:30pm. Sophomores are encouraged to attended the informational meeting!

2. Select and save the appropriate form from the editable pdf files given in the list below.

Note: if you are applying as a CS minor with a CS course major, then submit both the CS honors minor and the CS major form. Satisfying the CS major requirement will also satisfy the course requirements for the CS honors minor. However, we accept you to each independently, and we need your honors preparation from the CS honors minor form.

February 26 - March 2, meet with your CS advisor to map out a plan based on the guidelines given in the form. Use our tentative future schedule to see when courses will be offered. When formulating your plan be sure to take all three introductory courses (cs21, cs31, and cs35) prior to taking upper-level courses.

By 1 p.m., Monday, March 5, turn your completed form into Bridget in the CS main office.

Acceptance Criteria

Note that if you have not completed the introductory courses (CPSC 021, CPSC 031, or CPSC 035), your application will be deferred.

To be eligible for a computer science major, a student must have at least a B- average in the introductory courses (CPSC 021, CPSC 031, and CPSC 035). In addition, students have at least a C in CPSC 031 and CPSC 035 to be eligible to take upper-level courses. Students who have not met this criterion may re-take CPSC 031 or CPSC 035 to obtain the necessary foundation for success in upper-level courses. Students who are deferred have one year from the date of their application to satisfy these requirements.
