What is Entry-Level and how can I get promoted into the Upper Division Sequence?
Every CS student begins as Entry-Level until they complete the requirements to be promoted into the Upper Division Sequence.
Requirements for promotion into the Upper Division Sequence:
- Complete all CS Entry-Level courses (CS 312, CS 313K/311, CS 314 and M 408D or M 408S or M 408L).
- Complete all CS Entry-Level sequence courses with no grade lower than a “C”.
- Achieve a CS Entry-Level GPA of at least 2.50.
- Achieve a minimum overall UT GPA of at least 2.0.
- Must meet these requirements in no more than 2 attempts for each entry-level class.
The Upper Division Sequence describes the set of courses normally taken in the last three years of undergraduate study, in which students put to use the tools and concepts learned in Entry-Level courses. Student’s records will be reviewed following the posting of grades at the conclusion of summer and after each long semester.
In calculating your entry-level GPA for promotion purposes, we will only use the best of your attempts at each class. Keep in mind that all attempts will be used in calculating your official UT GPA.
