Department Admission Procedures

The admission requirements are outlined in the USF Undergraduate Catalog. Information on this page does not supersede the catalog. The catalog is the definitive source for admission requirements. Students are admitted into three programs within the Department - the programs are Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Information Technology. To be admitted to a program you must complete a Department Application form in Engineering Advising (Office is in ENC 1302).The key admission requirements are described below.

Computer Science Program:

The USF Undergraduate Catalog states:

"All students must complete the equivalent of USF Composition I & II, Engineering Calculus I & II and Calculus-based General Physics I & II (with labs) with minimum grades of C in each course (grades of C- are insufficient). The minimum overall average GPA in these six courses required for admission to the Department is between 3.0 and 3.5 for any given year. The minimum acceptable average GPA will be posted on the Department's website one year prior to the Fall Semester that the revised GPA is applicable. The computed GPA is based on the best attempts in these courses."

Starting in Fall 2018, the minimum GPA in the six above noted courses for admission into the Computer Science program is 3.1.

Computer Engineering Program:

The USF Undergraduate Catalog states:

"All students must complete the equivalent of USF Composition I & II, Engineering Calculus I & II and Calculus-based General Physics I & II (with labs) with minimum grades of C in each course (grades of C- are insufficient). The minimum overall average GPA in these six courses required for admission to the Department is between 3.0 and 3.5 for any given year. The minimum acceptable average GPA will be posted on the Department's website one year prior to the Fall Semester that the revised GPA is applicable. The computed GPA is based on the best attempts in these courses."

Starting in Fall 2018 the minimum GPA in the six above noted courses for admission into the Computer Engineering program is 3.1.

Information Technology Program:

The USF Undergraduate Catalog states:

"All students must complete the equivalent of USF Discrete Math (MAD 2104), Introduction to Databases for Information Technology (CGS 1540), Programming Fundamentals for IT (COP 2512), and Object Oriented Programming for IT (COP 2513) with minimum grades of C in each course (grades of C- are insufficient). The minimum overall average GPA in these four courses required for admission to the department is between 2.0 and 3.5 for any given year. The minimum acceptable average GPA will be posted on the department's website one year prior to the Fall Semester that the revised GPA is applicable. The computed GPA is based on the best attempts in these courses."

Starting in Fall 2018 the minimum GPA in the four above noted courses for admission into the Information Technology program is 3.0.
