IUG Degree Requirements

Students in the IUG program must satisfy the requirements for both the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees. The total course load is reduced due to 12 credits that can count towards both degrees. The first two years of the IUG program are identical to the first two years of the Bachelor of Science program. (See the typical schedule for Computer Science BS degree.) The third year of the IUG program differs from the third year of the Bachelor of Science program due to a change in the order in which courses are normally taken. The fourth year of the IUG program differs from the fourth year of the Bachelor of Science program because of the inclusion of courses that count toward the Master of Science degree requirements. Please see the typical schedule for an IUG degree student .

Student performance will be monitored on an on-going basis. In addition, a formal evaluation of student academic performance will be performed when the student has completed 100 to 105 credits, which is at the end of the first semester of the senior year for a typical student in the program. Students who have not maintained a 3.5 GPA in their Math and Computer Science courses will be put on probationary status with respect to the IUG program. Their ability to continue in the IUG program will be based on their academic performance in the last semester of their senior year.

A minimum grade point average of 3.5 must be earned in all math and computer science course work that is applied toward the graduate degree. This includes any courses that count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as all courses taken during the fifth year.

If for any reason a student admitted to the IUG program is unable to complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree, the student will be permitted to receive the Bachelor of Science degree assuming all the undergraduate degree requirements have been satisfactorily completed. Students who successfully complete courses listed in the recommended schedule will satisfy the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree by the end of their fourth year.
