BS in CS Online Degree Completion for Transfer Students

Launching in Summer 2014, CDM will now permit new transfer students to complete the BS in Computer Science degree online.

In order to participate in the program, a transfer student must be admitted to DePaul and meet the following requirements:

  • have a minimum of 45 quarter/30 semester hours of transfer credit
  • completed one semester of Java or C++
  • have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0
  • be in good standing at the last school they attended

The sample schedule below outlines one way of fulfilling the degree requirements. Please note that not all liberal studies courses are available online. This includes English Composition I (WRD 103), the lab science requirement, and Public Speaking (INTC 220). Students who need these courses will need to take them on campus at DePaul or transfer them in.

CDM Academic Success Center advisors will help you design a degree completion plan that works for you. Time to completion will vary based on amount of coursework transferred to DePaul. If you have general questions about the online degree completion program, please contact advising@cdm.depaul.edu .
