Course Pre-Requisite Flowchart and Cohort Rotation
The course flowchart and cohort rotation details the pre-requisite structure of the courses in the program and the specific courses a student is expected to take each semester of her/his enrollment in the program. The chart is based on the assumption that a student begins during the Fall semester, enrolls in 6 credit hours each semester, and satisfactorily completes all courses each semester. The Department will offer courses each semester to honor the cohort rotation. Students wishing to take less than 6 credit hours each semester may not be able to complete the program. Furthermore, it is not possible to take more than 6 credit hours each semester.
- Students are allowed only one grade of C in all courses applying toward the degree.
- Students must satisfactorily complete CS 6910 (Project I) by earning a grade of “S” in order to remain in the program.
- Students must satisfactorily complete CS 6920 (Project II) by earning a grade of “S” and participate in an exit interview with computer science graduate faculty.
