Students should check the Department of Computer Science website regularly, especially before selecting each semester's courses. Announcements of particular importance are highlighted on the main webpage.

Courses in computer science introduce students to a broad range of formal and applied material, as well as new ways of thinking. Mastery of material is important for moving on toward deeper ideas. Please note that courses for which a student has received a grade of D cannot be used to satisfy prerequisite requirements. Students who are having difficulty earning grades of C or better are strongly encouraged to see a computer science academic adviser.
