Exam Requirement: All Computer Science majors are required to pass the Advanced Programming Exam prior to taking courses for which it is a prerequisite. Passing the exam is required for graduation and no exam waivers will be granted for degree completion.
Grade Requirements: As a computer science student, you are expected to maintain an overall university GPA ≥2.3. Each computer science course and cybersecurity course must be completed with a minimum grade ≥C+. All supporting courses required by the department must be completed with a minimum grade ≥C.

University Competencies and Proficiencies
- Minimum Credits—180 cumulative credit hours
- 60 upper-division credits (300 level or above)
- 45 credits in residence (attendance) at Eastern, with at least 15 upper-division credits in major in residence at Eastern
- Minimum Cumulative GPA ≥2.0
All admitted students must officially Declare a Major by the time they reach 90 credits (junior standing).
Application for Graduation (use EagleNET) must be made at least two terms in advance of the term you expect to graduate (undergraduate and post-baccalaureate).
Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
Degree Works calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
