To be approved to register, please send responses to the following questions via email to the faculty assigned to the course the semester you plan to take the course.
Job description: Explain what you do in this position, and how it relates to computer science. It does not need to be a formal HR description, but it should demonstrate the relationship. This information will allow us to determine if your position justifies upper division CS credit.
You need to speak with your supervisor and make sure they are willing to fill out an employee evaluation (form provided) at the end of the semester. Provide supervisor’s name.
How many credit hours will I receive for this course?
You will receive 3 credit hours.
What are the prerequisites for this course?
Instructor approval is required for this course.
How long does the internship/job need to run?
The internship or job must run the entire length of the semester you registered.
Can I get credit for a previous internship/job?
The internship or job must be worked during the semester credit is received (it is not retroactive for a previous internship).
Does this count towards my WEBUX degree?
It depends. If needed, it will slot as "Electives required for BS degree" on either the Full Stack Development or User Experience Design emphasis. Please ask a WEBUX advisor if this course will count for you specifically.
Note that if you need to simply fill the 40 hour university upper division requirement, then WEB 4860 can help there.
Does this count towards my CS degree?
It depends, if you have already received credit for CS 4890 as an "other elective", you can not also receive credit WEB 4860 as an "other elective". Please ask a CS advisor if this course will count for you specifically.
