|Updated Two Year Rotation|
The two year rotation has been updated to reflect changes in the 2015/16
academic year (including more sections of 300-level CMPS courses) and to
give a preliminary (and tentative) list of semester courses for 2016/17.
This update also fixes a course number typo: the semester course number
for CMPS 335 is CMPS 3350.

Note that courses listed as tentative for
2015/16 are not guaranteed to be offered. They may be canceled due to staffing
issues and/or lack of student demand for the courses.

|Winter 2015 Advising Notes Update|
Computer Science students who are on the waitlist in Winter 2015 for core
300-level CMPS courses and who plan to graduate by June 2015 should contact
Dr. Melissa Danforth for individual course substitution plans. In general,
given the large number of seniors on the waitlists, an additional 400-level
course (beyond the 400-level course requirements for the CMPS concentrations)
can be used to substitute for a 300-level core course for those who are
planning to graduate by June 2015. You will need to come by Dr. Danforth's
office for a substitution form in order for your grad check to be
processed correctly. This is a temporary substitution purely for those trying
to graduate by June 2015, as additional sections of the courses are planned
for the 2015/16 academic year.
|CMPS 305 in Winter 2015|
For those who are interested, CMPS 305 - Numerical Analysis, can be used as
a substitution for a 400-level elective course for the main Computer Science
track. The course meets on MWF from 11:30-12:40 and Th from 10:00-12:30, and
is being taught by Dr. Marc Thomas. The prereqs are Calc 3 and CMPS 221. It
is also cross-listed with MATH 305 for any mathematics majors who might be
interested in the course.
