Program eligibility requirements
Students interested in the Cybersecurity Bachelor of Science degree will be given pre-major status when admitted to the university. They will be assigned an academic advisor in the College of Sciences.
For acceptance into the Cybersecurity major, students must submit an Undergraduate Program Declaration Form when the following conditions are met:
- Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 for ICS 265 and MATH 215 or transfer equivalents.
- Have a grade of C- or higher for all major prerequisites;
- Completed the General Education Goal I Writing Requirement; and
- Demonstrated competency in the "C programming language" either by coursework (e.g., ICS 265) or passing a "C Programming" competency exam.
Students in pre-major status are unable to take any 400-level major courses. Official acceptance into this major program and the review of transfer coursework equivalency and qualifications are done through the Computer Science and Cybersecurity (CSC) Department.
