Notes About the Minor

  • Students with a computer science or computer engineering major are ineligible for the CS minor.
  • Students in the College of Arts and Sciences cannot use a course to satisfy both a minor and a major requirement. A course can only count towards the minor or the major, but not both.
  • Any student who completes all of the requirements for a minor in Computer Science before graduation will be awarded the minor if they submit the minor request form at the beginning of their graduation semester.

Declaring the CS Minor

The CS Minor is a SEAS minor, even for students who are not in SEAS. Thus, any student applying for the minor must use the following online DocuSign form: Minor Declaration Form – School of Engineering & Applied Science. Please note that in order to be approved for the CS Minor, students must have a major declared in SIS.
