The degree program for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science assumes that students have already obtained a working knowledge of personal computing fundamentals and applications, including word processing, spreadsheets, database systems, e-mail systems and presentation graphics.
Computer Science Placement Examination
The curriculum begins with a three-course sequence covering concepts of programming and data structures. If students have knowledge of these topics, but do not have the courses to transfer, nor AP scores to submit, they may take the Computer Science Placement Examination to waive one or more of these courses. The test may be taken only once, and scores are valid for two consecutive semesters.
