You meet admissions criteria as one of the following student types:
Freshman Transfer (Less than 30 hours)
A student that has taken some college level work after high school graduation and are interested in transferring to Auburn University. Applicants who have not completed college-level work after high school but have coursework in progress will receive an admissions decision after coursework has been completed and an official transcript is provided.
Transfer (30 semester hours or more)
You are a student that has taken at least 30 hours of college work after graduating from high school at an institution and is transferring credits to Auburn University.
Already completed a bachelor’s degree? If you graduated with a GPA of 2.5 or higher (on a 4.0 scale), then you automatically fulfill all core requirements and can fast-track into our online BCS program.
To complete the program, you must...
Complete 20 courses, broken down into 18 core courses and 2 electives, for a total of 60 credit hours of computer science course work at graduation. These courses must be taken in addition to the university core coursework required for transfer students. There are five 7.5 week terms each year (two in Fall and Spring and one in Summer) to complete these courses in.
