Academic Standards

Program GPA

Program GPA requirement policies are described in the College of Engineering and Computing  section of this bulletin. For the purpose of these policies, the following courses are used to determine the Program GPA for the Integrated Information Technology B.S. program: all Lower Division Integrated Information Technology courses, all Integrated Information Technology Major courses and all Major Elective courses.

Minimum Course Grades

The Integrated Information Technology B.S. program requires that a grade of “C” or better be earned in MATH 174  and all ITEC courses applied to the degree. All required IIT courses and courses taken as major electives are major courses and may not be counted toward a minor. All other required courses and electives may be used for a minor or application area as appropriate. CSCE 101   and CSCE 102  are not major courses and may not be counted for major credit.

Major Map

A major map is a layout of required courses in a given program of study, including critical courses and suggested course sequences to ensure a clear path to graduation.

Major maps are only a suggested or recommended sequence of courses required in a program of study. Please contact your academic advisor for assistance in the application of specific coursework to a program of study and course selection and planning for upcoming semesters.
