  • Policies: The Engineering College's Committee on Academic Affairs (CCAA) is responsible for setting policies applicable to all engineering programs including the BS CSE program. The CCAA Handbook details the current policies. Specifically, pages 32-33 of the handbook list graduation requirements and procedures. Pages 36 onward describe academic standards that students maintain and policies regarding probation, dismissal, and reinstatement. Briefly, students are required to maintain MPHR and CPHR of 2.0 or above; failure to do so, as detailed in the handbook, may result in probation or dismissal from the program, the college, or the university.
