Except in special cases for Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Mathematics majors, outside substitutions (i.e., courses in other departments) will not be allowed. Students desiring a Minor in Computer Science must complete all required credit hours with CSC courses.

Please see the General Catalog for course descriptions and other information.

Students are encouraged to carefully read the course descriptions and avoid courses that are too similar in nature to courses already taken with another department. Often, credit will not be given for two similar courses. If you have received credit outside of the computer science department for a course similar to a course that is required for the minor, you must seek written permission from an advisor to substitute another computer science course.
