In addition to the requirements for the major, each student must satisfy additional requirements for the University, College and School.
All students must complete the Academic Degree Requirements and Summer Enrollment Requirement as explained in the FIU catalog:
All students must complete the University Core Curriculum and Foreign Language Requirement as explained in the FIU catalog:
All students entering Fall 2011 and later must complete the University Global Learning requirement. The discipline specific course for all SCIS degrees is CGS 3095 Technology in the Global Arena.
All students must complete the General Requirements for a Baccalaureate Degree in the College of Engineering as explained in the FIU catalog:
In particular, students must complete at least 35 semester credits in the upper-division at FIU.
If a student takes a course at FIU and has already received transfer credit for an equivalent course at another institution, then the credits for the repeated course at FIU are not applicable toward graduation.
At least 50% of the upper division credits required for the degree must be taken at FIU.
A grade of "C" or better must be obtained in all courses required for the major.
Note: A "C-" is not an acceptable grade.
Additional Requirements for Computer Science majors in both tracks:
No computer-related courses in other departments (including CGS 3300) may be taken for elective credit by a CS major, unless specifically approved in writing by the student's advisor.
No credit for graduation will be given to CS majors for the
