The department faculty will determine whether a student is to be awarded departmental honors based upon the following criteria:

  1. Demonstration of independent work by achieving a grade of "C" (2.0) or better in a four-unit CSE 595. Independent Study or credit in CSE 575. Internship in Computer Science;
  2. Attainment of a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 ("B") in all university courses attempted and a minimum grade point average of 3.5 in all computer science courses required by the major (as defined above);
  3. At least five computer science courses required by the major must be taken at this university.

Candidacy for honors in computer science is voluntary and must be applied for at the beginning of the senior year. Approval of honors rests solely with the department and other factors may weigh in their judgment.
