SouthEast Florida Engineering Education Consortium (SEFEEC)
## Palm Beach State College Curriculum Transfer to the FAU Computer Science Program

This curriculum applies to students entering PBSC for a future transfer to FAU, and is divided into three sections: Lower Division Non-Technical, and Lower Division Technical from PBSC, and an Upper Division Program from FAU.

See the note at the bottom for stipulations, and speak to your department or school advisor at PBSC, or FAU if you have any questions.

### Lower Division Non-technical Credits (Total 27 Credits) PBSC

### Lower Division Technical Credits (Total 37 Credits) PBSC

### Upper Division Program (Total 55 Credits) FAU

**NOTE:**

The lower division credit hours listed above will count toward the AA degree and will all transfer into the computer science program at FAU. If a student must take additional mathematics courses prior to becoming eligible for the initial calculus course listed in the 48 hours, those courses will count toward the AA Degree, but will be over and above the prescribed number of hours for the bachelor's in computer science. The AA degree assures that the student has met the Gordon Rule requirements of the State University System. Students transferring without the AA degree may have to take additional courses to meet the Gordon Rule.

This curriculum is subject to change. For the most current information, students should check with departmental advisors at PBSC or FAU.

- A maximum of 12 credit hours will be accepted at FAU for the Calculus sequence. This course as well as MAC 2312 and 2313 could be used towards PBSC's math general education requirements.
- A maximum of 8 credit hours will be accepted at FAU for the Physics sequence with lab. This course could be used towards PBSC's science general education requirements. Physics II also applies.
- This is not part of the Lower 48 curriculum but is required by the FAU computer science program, so the student can choose to take the course either at FAU or at PBSC.
- May be taken at PBSC.

The lower division credit hours listed above will count toward the AA degree and will all transfer into the computer science program at FAU. If a student must take additional mathematics courses prior to becoming eligible for the initial calculus course listed in the 48 hours, those courses will count toward the AA Degree, but will be over and above the prescribed number of hours for the bachelor's in computer science. The AA degree assures that the student has met the Gordon Rule requirements of the State University System. Students transferring without the AA degree may have to take additional courses to meet the Gordon Rule.
