Senior Project Prerequisites

 

The Undergraduate Committee has established a set of prerequisites for Senior Project. These prerequisites are

  • successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of Computer Science Foundation, Track Foundation, Track Core and Computer Science Electives with a grade of C- or better in all courses.

  • successful completion of WRTG 3030 (Writing on Science and Society) or the equivalent with a grade of C- or better.

  • senior standing -- in practice, a student must be reasonably able to graduate in Spring, Summer, or Fall of the calendar year following entry into CSCI 4308.

Students who register for CSCI 4308 without meeting the prerequisites and who have not successfully petitioned to have them waived are administratively dropped from the class.

Taking a Prerequisite Concurrently with Senior Project

In a few special cases, students are allowed to take a prerequisite course concurrently with Senior Project. Students wanting to do this should submit a completed College of Engineering and Applied Science College Petition to the Computer Science Department Undergraduate Committee via Undergraduate Program Advisor Lesley McDowell.

Petitions won't be considered unless all of the following conditions are met:

  1. A minimum of 30 credit hours of Computer Science Foundation, Track Foundation, Track Core and Computer Science Electives have been completed, all with a grade of C- or better.

  2. Overall GPA is 3.0 or higher.

  3. There are no uncompleted IF or IW grades.

  4. The student must have a reasonable plan that allows graduation in Spring, Summer, or Fall of the calendar year following entry into CSCI 4308.

Note that these are conditions that the Undergraduate Committee has established for submitting a petition. Meeting these conditions does not guarantee approval of the petition.
