We are so excited that you are considering studying off-campus! Studying in another part of the world or country can be a valuable part of your academic journey, and an instrumental experience in further developing your technical skills, yet in a different context.
Some things to consider as you plan your off-campus study experience as a computer science major:
- Junior year is generally the best time to study off-campus. If you are planning on completing a Bachelor of Science degree and spring of your junior year is an odd year, then you would need to study off-campus during the fall semester because you need to complete CSCI 470 for the B.S. degree, which is offered spring of odd years.
- If you are interested in studying off campus, discussing this as early as possible is key to working this into your four-year plan, especially since so much of the major’s upper level curriculum is offered on an every-other-year basis. If you have already declared a computer science major, please talk to your advisor. Otherwise, you may refer to the department chair.
