Undergraduate students who are engaged in research projects supervised by faculty may wish to substitute hours of CSC 499 (Independent Research in Computer Science) for a Computer Science Restricted Elective or Other Restricted Elective.
These substitutions must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Programs on a case-by-case basis. Substitutions will be evaluated based on a written proposal. Students are expected to provide a mentor-approved written summary of their research experience to the Office of Undergraduate Advising before credit will be recorded for CSC 499. Students may substitute a maximum of six hours of CSC 499 for CSC Restricted Elective and/or Other Restricted Elective. CSC 499 is only offered on a credit-only ("S/U") grading basis.
