Computer Science: Transfer Students

The School of Computing participates in the University's articulation agreement with the state's junior colleges. Many talented students have graduated from our Computer Science program after attending junior colleges. We are happy to give credit for equivalent courses offered at junior colleges.

Most of our transfer students have taken a large number of core courses and typically take a large number of Computer Science classes at USM. Below are listed the transferable general curriculum courses.

Written Communication

Two composition courses (6 credit hours) are required for graduation.

Computer Science Courses

 USM students learn C++ as the first programming language. This occurs in CSC 101/L and CSC 102. We will accept up to 2 courses in an object-oriented language. Some junior colleges also offer Visual Basic and Discrete Structures courses which can substitute for courses in our curriculum.
