This program prepares the student for a challenging workplace with an enhanced knowledge of business applications. The curriculum for the degree is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in computer and information systems and business administration.
Admission requirements for this program are satisfied by the general requirements for undergraduate admission to the University.
A student is considered to be on academic probation whenever his or her cumulative grade point average, or his or her grade point average in the computer science program, falls below 2.0. A student may also be placed on probation whenever his or her academic performance is deemed unsatisfactory. If, at the end of the first semester on probation, the student’s cumulative grade point average has not increased to at least 2.0, he or she will be excluded from the Department of Computer Science. If the student’s cumulative g.p.a. reaches at least 2.0 by the end of the first semester after being placed on probation, he or she will be returned to regular status. Following exclusion from the Department of Computer Science, the privilege of registering in the Department will be withheld for at least one calendar year.
A student who has been refused the privilege of registering in the Department may request a reconsideration of his or her status by the Academic Standards Committee (ASC) after the one-year exclusionary period. He or she should not make the request, however, unless evidence can be provided of changes in academic preparation or circumstances that will substantially increase the likelihood of academic success. A formal written request for reconsideration must be presented to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Students who plan to petition for readmission are encouraged to request a meeting with the ASC as early as possible during the exclusion period to discuss what changes may provide an opportunity for readmission. In no case is readmission to the Department of Computer Science guaranteed.
Repeated Courses and Substandard Grades
Students will be allowed up to a maximum of five repeated courses, one repeated course for a substandard grade. If a student must repeat a subsequent course in order to complete their degree, he or she will be excluded from the Department of Computer Science (i.e., students must complete a course within three attempts). Prerequisite math and science courses that do not satisfy degree requirements, but are required if students did not place into MAT 2010, are also counted towards exclusion from the Department. A substandard grade is defined as a grade lower than the minimum requirement (i.e., a grade of C-minus in CSC 1100/1101, or a WP/WF/WN).
Candidates must complete 120 credits in course work including satisfaction of the University General Education Requirements, as well as the departmental major requirements cited below. All course work must be completed in accordance with the regulations of the University and the College of Engineering governing undergraduate scholarship and degrees.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned academic advisor to discuss degree requirements as soon as possible after admittance into the program.

Business Administration Minor
The Mike Ilitch School of Business offers a minor in business for undergraduate students majoring in other disciplines. The Business Minor consists of six courses, totaling eighteen credits. Students must also complete prerequisite courses with a minimum grade of C (2.0 g.p.a.) for each course. The minor provides an excellent opportunity for non-business majors to broaden their knowledge of the business disciplines. In addition, the program enhances career prospects and establishes a solid business base for pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree. To be eligible to apply for the Business Minor, students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 2.5.
Information Technology students must meet with a business advisor to officially declare a minor.
