CS 1331 prerequisite for the minor required (this course does NOT count toward the 15 credit hours required for minor) and a grade of A or B is required

  • A CS Minor application is required.
  • No Special Problems or Internship coursework may be used towards the CS minor.
  • A grade of A or B is required for CS 1301/CS 1315/CS 1371 and CS 1331. All other minor courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
  • Only CS courses are included in the minor.
  • A maximum of 3 credit hours of transfer credit may be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor. This includes courses taken at another institution or credit earned through the AP or IB program, assuming the scores meet Georgia Tech minimum standards.
  • It is the major advisor’s responsibility to verify that students are using only courses from the designated block(s) from the student’s major field of study that are allowed to satisfy a minor program, that they are not using any Core Area A-E courses (including humanities and social sciences), and that they are not using any courses for more than one minor or certificate. Any free elective course used to satisfy the course requirements of the student’s major degree program may also be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor.
