  • Grade Requirements: A grade of “C” or better must be earned in all required CS courses (a grade of “C-” is not acceptable). A grade of “C-” or better must be earned in all required support courses. In addition, an overall GPA of 2.70 or higher must be attained for all required courses.
  • Credit Hour Requirements: This degree requires a minimum 63 credit hours.
  • Assessment Requirements: Students will be required to complete certain assessment instruments as part of the overall requirements for receiving their associate’s degree. Please see your advisor or your department for specific information regarding assessment.

Advisement

It is strongly suggested that Computer Science students see the departmental advisor on a regular basis. Call the department secretary at 801-626-7929 for an appointment with the advisor.  (Also refer to the Department Advisor Referral List.)

Admission Requirements

Declare your program of study (refer to Enrollment Services and Information ) as Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science. No special admission or application requirements are needed for this program. However, students must successfully complete the CS 1030 - Foundations of Computer Science  course with the grade of “C” or better. In lieu of taking this course, a student may elect to take a CS 1030  placement test, but must pass with a test score of 73% of better. The student will have two attempts to achieve the 73% score, before having to take the course. The last score received will be the score used to determine placement. The first official Computer Science course is CS 1400 , which can be taken as a co-requisite to CS 1030 .

General Education

Refer to Degree and General Education Requirements  for the AAS general education requirements (core and breadth). The following required support courses will also be applied toward general education requirements: COMM 2110 , ENGL 2010 , PHYS 2210 , MATH 1040  (orMATH 1210  or MATH 3410 ), and Computer Literacy as defined in this catalog (NTM 1501 , NTM 1502 , NTM 1503 , and NTM 1504  or equivalent). In addition to these courses, students must take a Social Science course to fulfill the AAS general education requirements.

Students who pass the Computer Science Advanced Placement A exam with a score of 3 receive 8 hours of credit and specific credit for CS 1022  (4). Students who pass the Computer Science Advanced Placement A exam with a score of 4 or 5 receive 8 hours of credit and specific credit for CS 1400  (4) (If they already have the CS 1400  (4) course they may receive CS 1023  (4)).

Students who pass the Computer Science Advanced Placement A/B exam with a score of 3 receive 8 hours of credit and specific credit for CS 1400  (4) (If they already have the CS 1400  (4) course they may receive CS 1023 (4)). Students who pass the Computer Science Advanced Placement A/B exam with a score of 4 or 5 receive 8 hours of credit and specific credit for CS 1400  (4) and CS 1023  (4) (If they already have the CS 1400  (4) course they may receive CS 1023  (4) and CS 1022  (4)).
