Can I DOUBLE-COUNT COURSES FOR BOTH MY B.S. AND M.S. DEGREES?
Double-counting courses is permitted in a limited set of circumstances, summarized as follows:
- You can never double-count more than 9 units
- Your B.S. must have more than 180 degree-applicable units for each unit you double-count (so, you need 189 units to double-count 9 units). This typically limits double-counting to CPE majors and people working on computing related minors
- You can only double-count technical electives, not required courses (CPE 464 can not double-count for CPE majors)
- The course must still meet all the applicable degree requirements
This summary leaves out a number of edge cases. If you doubts or questions talk to the CSSE graduate coordinator.
