  • CS110 , CS210, Math140, CS240, CS310
  • CS341 or Computer Science elective
  • One application elective
  • A minimum 2.0 GPA of the courses for the CS certificate is required
  • No course taken to satisfy a requirement for a degree or certificate may be taken Pass/Fail

Please note: Due to the prerequisite structure of the courses it may take two years to complete the Certificate. Below you will see program roadmap outlined by semester.
