Single Course Certificate Option
Students who take an individual CS course online for credit and are not in either the certificate or degree program may request a Certificate of Completion if a grade of B- or higher is received. Up to 3 courses can be transferred towards the degree program if accepted for admission. Please note that the online (I2CS) program is restricted to off-campus professionals and is not intended for those who have access to our on-campus courses and programs.
