Welcome to the Computer Science program! We are eager to assist you as you begin your progress toward a degree in Computer Science.
You will learn how to apply your knowledge of mathematical sciences, natural sciences, programming fundamentals, and computational theory as you solve problems using software-engineering analysis, design, and development principles. We are here to aid you in becoming a successful student, scholar, and future Monarch alumnus.
Advising support is provided to undergraduate students by a team of professionals who are specialists in areas of academic support.
Janet Brunelle is the Chief Departmental Advisor who also coordinates the computer science undergraduate program. She coordinates the internship courses, supervises independent study courses, and manages course equivalency evaluations. Advises students with 60 or more credit hours.
3rd & 4th Year Students Only: To receive online advising, complete this form and an email will be sent to the CS advisor.
During the summer we ask that students make an appointment:

CS 4-Year Curriculum
This is frequently a two stage process. After the Admissions Office receives an official transcript, an initial determination of transfer equivalence will be made. However, when it is unclear what the appropriate course equivalent is, the Admission Office awards only elective credit. A review of the course (via syllabus, text and work performed) can then be requested by the student at the appropriate department. Review of undergraduate Computer Science credits can be conducted by the undergraduate advisors in Computer Science.
LeADERS connects students to courses and real-world experiences in the areas of: Leadership, Academic Internship, Diversity, Entrepreneurship, Research, or Service Learning. Students complete courses in three, four, or five of these areas and develop a LeADERSePortfolio to showcase the employer-valued skills they gained through taking the courses listed below. Program graduates are recognized during commencement with bronze, silver, or gold LeADERS graduation medallions.
The CS 367-368, 411W, and 410 courses carry LeADERS designations.
