Purdue University - Department of Computer Science - Non-CS and non-degree students - access to CS courses

Non-CS and non-degree students - access to CS courses

Effective Spring 2019

Due to increasing enrollment in Computer Science (CS) undergraduate and graduate programs, availability of courses designed for CS and Data Science (DS) majors is limited.

See list of Spring 2019 courses open to all students that meet the prerequisites.

Purdue University will be closed for the Winter Recess beginning Friday, December 21, 2018 at 5:00 pm ET until Wednesday, January 2, 2019, at 8:00 am ET.  Please plan accordingly.

 


CS 18000 – off-peak only

Space will be available for non-CS majors during off-peak semesters (spring & summer).  Not open to students with credit in CS 24000. 

CS 18200, CS 24000 and CS 25200:

Declared CS minors, MACS majors and IMCS majors will be given access during time ticket registration during off-peak semesters (fall & summer).

All other students may be given access the Friday before classes begin, if the course pre-requisites are met and space is available. Space for non CS majors or CS minors is VERY limited.

Exploratory Studies students should see their advisor for guidance.

CS 25000 and CS 25100:

Declared CS minors, MACS majors and IMCS majors will be given access during time ticket registration during off-peak semesters (spring & summer).

Fall is peak session and therefore limited to CS and DS majors. Do NOT submit an override request, it will not be considered.

Exploratory Studies students should see their advisor for guidance.

CS 30000 – CS 49000:

Declared CS minors, MACS major or IMCS major, you will be granted access the Friday before classes begin if space is available.

All other students may be given access the Friday before classes begin, if the course pre-requisites are met and space is available. Space for non CS majors or CS minors is VERY limited.

CS Graduate Courses

Declared CS-STAT MS students with fewer than 5 CS courses completed may submit an override request for needed graduate courses. These will be reviewed during open registration.

Many CS graduate courses are available to non-CS graduate students and non-degree students.  For classes with restrictions, non-CS and non-degree students who meet prerequisites may submit a request for access. Requests will be reviewed and students notified whether space is available before the start of the semester. 


Requisite issues or errors:

If you have questions about pre-requisites or co-requisites, please contact your academic advisor.

Program error:

Students who are not CS/DS majors trying to register for CS courses will receive a program error. For all CS courses, priority is given to CS/DS students. Second priority will be given to declared CS minors, MACS majors and IMCS majors. All other students may be given access before classes begin, if the course pre-requisites are met and space is available. Space for non CS majors or CS minors is VERY limited.
