The information below is for additional guidance regarding the "1. Pre-requisite" component.

The Catalog states:

"Student admission will be based on:

1. Prerequisites

**Math Requirement:**- Calculus (6 hours)
- Linear Algebra or Statistics
- Discrete Mathematics

**Computer Science Requirement:**

- Programming Languages
- Data Structures
- Computer Architecture or Operating Systems
- Additional courses in Computer Science"

**Computer Science Requirement Guidance:**

As guidance towards interpreting the above, below are related undergraduate courses in the UNCC CS BS program.

- Data Structures
*Representative Example*:**Note**: Similar to any university "Data Structures" course (typically a sophomore level course), this course has two pre-requisites which are typically freshmen level courses. Sometimes these are generically referred to as CS 101 and CS 102.*Representative Example*:

- Programming Languages
*Representative Example*:

- Computer Architecture or Operating Systems
- Additional courses in Computer Science
