Additional Notes

Advising Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.
  • W suffix signifies the course satisfies the University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

Entrance to Major Requirements:

  • At least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average prior to and through the end of the semester during which the entrance-to-major procedure is carried out.

Program Notes

Students must also complete an internship (IST 495). This one-credit course represents 300 hours of a supervised work experience where the student is employed in an information science and technology position in industry, government, or academia. All IST students are required to take at least one internship and may take as many as three. It is recommended that students engage in as many internship opportunities as possible.

For the B.S. degree in Information Sciences and Technology, a minimum of 125 credits is required.
