BS CSE Majors
The application to graduate is now online and must be completed by the fourth Friday of the term before you wish to graduate. For example, students graduating in Spring Semester will be required to submit their applications by the 4th Friday of Autumn Semester. To access the application, go to the Engineering Graduation website.
Please note that a change in your graduating semester requires completion of a new application.
The Engineering College's Committee on Academic Affairs (CCAA) is responsible for setting policies, including graduation policies and procedures, applicable to all engineering programs including the BS CSE program. The CCAA Handbook details the current policies. Please see pages 32-33 of the handbook for the graduation requirements and procedures.
BS CIS and BA CIS Majors
The application to graduate must be completed and submitted one semester before graduation. Pick up a Major Program form from the Computer Science Advising Office. Once it is filled out, make an appointment to have an advisor sign the form.
Once you have a signed Major Program form, make an appointment with your Arts and Sciences advisor to submit the form and fill out any additional paperwork. Also check ASC's graduation page.
Program Outcomes Achievement Test (POCAT)
A key aspect of the BS CSE program is a comprehensive set of processes and tools to assess the program and to use the results of the assessments to evaluate various aspects of the program and identify and implement improvements in the program. To assist with this, prior to graduation, BS CSE, BS CIS and BA CIS majors are required to complete the exit test, POCAT. Students will receive emails in their final semester with instructions on how to register for the POCAT.
The exit survey is part of a careful assessment and feedback activity that BS CSE students are required to take. Starting in 2014-2015, BS CIS and BA CIS majors will also be asked to complete an exit survey. Students will be instructed to take this survey during their final semester while completing the POCAT.
