*It is recommended that sequence courses be completed at one institution.

Total transferable credits required to earn this degree: 90 with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0.  Universities may expect certain minimal grades in various courses in order to certify into their computer science programs.  A course cannot be credited toward more than one distribution or skill area.

Students completing this program should acquire the following skills and abilities:

  • Apply mathematics to the solution of problems in computer science.
  • Apply physics to the solution of problems in computer science.
  • Discover, develop, and utilize algorithms suitable for the design of computer programs.
  • Design and implement computer programs using various programming languages.
Revised November 2017 


Program planning is based on information available at the time of preparation. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with their LCC advisor and for checking specific major requirements of baccalaureate institutions in the year prior to transferring. Consult the LCC catalog for LCC graduation requirements.

  • MATH 215 is offered winter quarter of even years.
  • MATH 220 is offered every spring quarter.

Most four-year universities require one year of a single foreign language as a graduation requirement.
