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 a Computer Science faculty advisor when that application has been processed. Your assigned Computer Science faculty advisor is an excellent resource if you have specific questions about the Computer Science program and your future career plans in computer science.

Students with Freshman standing will need to meet with their assigned faculty 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 faculty 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 faculty advisor.

  • For all computer science major questions, or to schedule an appointment please reach out to your assigned faculty advisor.
