Department Progression

The degree program progression requirements are outlined in the USF Undergraduate Catalog. Information on this page does not supersede the catalog. The catalog is the definitive source for all requirements. Progression requirements are described below. Note that there are additional minimum grade requirements in key classes for progression, consult the catalog. Consult with Engineering Student Services (ESS) advisors if additional information is needed. 

Computer Science

The USF Undergraduate Catalog academic year 2022-23 states:

"All students must complete the equivalent of USF Engineering Calculus I & II, and Calculus-based General Physics I (with lab) with minimum grades of C in each course (grades of C- are insufficient). The minimum overall grade in these three courses required for progression to the upper division is between 3.0 and 3.8 for any given year. The minimum acceptable grade average will be posted on the department’s website one year prior to the Fall Semester that the revised grade average is applicable. The computed grade average is based on the best attempts in these courses. These requirements must be met with a maximum of two attempts allowed for each course."

Starting in Fall 2022, the minimum average grades in the three above noted courses for progression in the Computer Science program is 3.5.

CYBERSECURITY

The USF Undergraduate Catalog for academic year 2022-23 states:

"All students must complete the equivalent of USF Discrete Mathematics (MAD 2104), Introductory Statistics (STA 2023), Conceptual Physics (PHY 2020), and Pre-calculus with Algebra and Trigonometry (MAC 1147) with minimum grades of C in each course (grades of C- are insufficient). The minimum overall grade average in these four courses required for progression to the upper level is between 2.0 and 3.5 for any given year. The minimum acceptable grade average will be posted on the department’s website one year prior to the fall semester that the revised grade average is applicable. The computed grade average is based on the best attempts in these courses. These requirements must be met with a maximum of two attempts allowed for each course."

Starting in Fall 2022, the minimum average grades in the four above noted courses for progression in the Cybersecurity program is 3.3.

Information Technology

The USF Undergraduate Catalog for academic year 2022-23 states:
