Computer Science Department
Computer courses provide opportunities for all students to imagine, solve problems and create projects, both collaboratively and independently, whether they are beginning or advanced users. In this digital age our computer courses provide the knowledge and problem solving skills that cross academic disciplines and develop independent, creative, and resourceful students, able to communicate their ideas using a variety of media.

- INDEPENDENT STUDY CLASSES
Independent study classes are for motivated students who want to learn more about technology and receive recognition for their efforts, but do not want to be held within the constraints of a traditional class. Independent study classes are not given a grade or figured into the GPA, but if a unit is completed within the allotted time, the Registrar will award recognition on the student’s transcript stating the student completed the unit for enrichment credit and that the student either completed the unit or completed the unit with honors. Any earned credits will be reflected on the transcript.
