Minor in Computer Science

To obtain a minor in computer science, students must pass, with a “C” or better (“C-” and “P” for “pass” are not included), five CS courses at or above CS 18000 that can be used to fulfill CS major requirements. All five courses must be taken at Purdue University West Lafayette.

None of the following courses can be used to fulfill a minor in CS:

  • Independent Study (CS 19000, 29000, 39000, 49000, 59000, 69000). However, courses using these as temporary course numbers may be used for minor requirements. Verify with a CS advisor.
  • EPCS (EPICS) courses.
