Major Application

The major application has closed. Students seeking admission after this date will need to speak directly with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Please contact the SoC front desk.

New majors are admitted to the computer science program each fall and spring. You should plan to apply after the semester in which you complete the pre-major requirements.ONLY submit this form when your final grades have been posted.*** Students with both GPAs at or above 3.5 should not include an academic statement. ***Students with either GPA below 3.5 should include an academic statement:

* Students with one or both GPAs below the requirements, but whose semester-by-semester GPAs over the last academic year do meet the requirements, should explicitly detail their improving performance over that time period.

* Students who perform poorly in Calc I and/or II and who have subsequently had excellent grades in advanced math courses such as Calc III, Linear Algebra, and Probability / Statistics should explicitly detail their performance in the statement.

* Students with additional CS courses may ask that the grades in those courses be considered in the CS pre-major GPA.

* Students who have taken Physics or other engineering courses in the past year may ask that the grades in those courses be considered in the CS pre-major GPA.

Admission decisions will be based solely on the committee’s estimation of the student’s likelihood of success in the Computer Science degree program.
