Index Requirement

CS 201, CS 202 and all other CS courses counted toward the major must be completed with a grade of “C” or better. To continue in the major, students who fail to earn a grade of “C” or better in a required course must repeat that course before taking additional courses.

A student who does not earn a C or higher in the second attempt of Computer Science I (CS 201), Computer Science II (CS 202), and/or Data Structures and Algorithms (CS 301) must meet with the Department Chair and the Advising Center to help the student choose a major that will lead to successful degree completion. If the student requires further assistance, the chair will refer the student to the Dean.
