Program Requirements

Program Core Courses

Program Core courses must be completed with a letter grade of C- or better. P/NP is not accepted. 


  • This program is fully contained in the Computer Programming, AAS  degree
  • This program follows the Career Pathway Certificate of Completion Requirements  unless otherwise specified.
  • Computer programming languages: Students' taking their first programming language (C, N, or P) will take CS 161/162. Because CS 161/162 are not repeatable courses, upon taking a second programming language, students must use the CS 133/233 course numbers. CS 161/162 are the courses listed in catalog degree requirements but CS 133/233 will be accepted as well. For help with this, contact the department or academic advisors.
