The student should have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 to be accepted into the program.

What additional courses are required for transfer?

For either option, students need CMSC 204, CMSC 206 and CMSC 315. For the individual options, students must also take:

Solid State Option: CHEMM 400 (Physical Chemistry) and the physics elective should be PHYS 326 (Optics)

IACS Option: CMSC 301, 306 and CMSC 311
