Computer Science Advising

CS 392/492 Lab Experience in Teaching Computer Science:

These are required courses. You must submit an application to be a teaching assistant, and assignments will be awarded based on student's graduation quarter, courses taken at CWU, and course schedule. All CS majors must complete:

  • 1-credit of CS 392 (3 hours of work per week) and;
  • 2-credits of CS 492 (6 hours of work per week)

CS majors are required to have a graduation plan on file with the department and it must be kept up to date. Notifications for CS 392/492 applications are sent via Canvas and will be sent based on student's graduation plan on file with the department. All graduation plans must be updated by the start of each quarter.

Computer Science Advising:

Advising and student success are important components of the Computer Science programs. When your application to declare CS as your major or minor, you are assigned to a Computer Science Academic Advisor, when that application has been processed. Your assigned Computer Science Academic Advisor is an excellent resource if you have specific questions about the Computer Science program and your future career plans in computer science.

advising message

Students with Freshman standing will need to meet with their assigned advisor every quarter, while students with Sophomore or Junior standing should do so at least once per year. By the time you are finishing your Sophomore year or CS 301 (whichever is sooner), you should meet with your assigned advisor to create a graduation plan. Given the importance of prerequisites within the computer science major, it is important that you have a current graduation plan on file in the department; if you don’t have one or have not updated it recently, please schedule an advising appointment with your assigned advisor.

  • For all computer science major program questions, please contact Angela Murry-Walker by phone at 509-963-3808 or by email at Students may schedule meetings or communicate with their CS Academic Advisor, Angela Murry-Walker, via Canvas.
