All continuing students (non-transfers and non-freshmen for Fall 2002) have the opportunity to choose the old or new curriculum. Advisors will be given curriculum-choice forms for the students to fill out when they register for the Spring semester. For those students who choose to stay with the old curriculum, the following substitutions will apply.

For all continuing students in the old curriculum: 

COSC 210 or COSC 281 (OO Programming) will be counted as a controlled elective.

For students on the old curriculum who have taken three-credit COSC 220 and COSC 315: 

B.A. requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as if it were COSC 441 (satisfying upper-level elective requirement).
  • COSC 344 will be counted as if it were COSC 444 (satisfying upper-level elective requirement).

B.S., Languages and Systems Track, requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as a controlled elective.
  • COSC 344 will be counted as a controlled elective.

B.S., Applied Computer Science Track, requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as if it were COSC 441.
  • COSC 344 will be counted as a controlled elective; it can count as an upper-level elective only if COSC 441 was taken.

For students on the old curriculum who have taken three-credit COSC 220 or four-credit COSC 220 but have not taken COSC 315: 

B.A. requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as a substitute for COSC 315 but not as an upper-level elective.
  • COSC 344 will be counted as if it were COSC 444 (satisfying upper-level elective requirement).

B.S., Languages and Systems Track, requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as a substitute for COSC 315.
  • COSC 344 will be counted as a controlled elective.

B.S., Applied Computer Science Track, requirements:

  • COSC 341 will be counted as a substitute for COSC 315.
  • Either COSC 304 or COSC 344 must be taken as a substitute for COSC 441.

For students on the old curriculum who have not taken three-credit COSC 220: 

The four-credit COSC 220 is required; then, follow the guidelines above or change to the new curriculum. Taking the four-credit COSC 220 will probably lead to these students having more than the required number of Computer Science credits.

For any student on the new curriculum, whether matriculating in the Fall 2002 semester or the result of changing from the old curriculum: 

  • COSC 281 (OO Programming) will be counted as COSC 210.
  • COSC 315 will be counted as a controlled elective.
  • COSC 441 will be counted as if it were COSC 341.
  • COSC 444 will be counted as if it were COSC 344.

Any student who has taken three-credit COSC 220 is required to take an additional credit of controlled or upper-elective courses to reach the new Computer Science credit requirement. (This will probably mean taking three credits, not one.)
