Computer Science Placement

The Computer Science placement exam is only necessary for students who think that they may place out of our introductory course (CPSC 21) and start with either one of our two intermediate-level courses (CPSC 31 or 35) instead.  Students who want to start with CPSC 21 do not need to take the CS placement exam.  After taking the CS placement exam in July or August, you should sign-up for an individual meeting with a CS faculty member to discuss your appropriate placement into CS.  The placement exam and the individual meeting must be completed prior to registering for either CPSC 31 or 35.
