All CNS students are required to meet entry-level requirements prior to declaring a specific degree and major option. In order to meet entry-level requirements, all entry-level courses must be completed with a grade of C- or better and maintain good standing in CNS. Computer Science, Public Health, and Environmental Science have additional program requirements and require higher than a 2.0 GPA.
