Submitted by:  Department of Computer Science
Contact:  Min Song, Professor and Chair  (

1. Full name of program to be shelved

B.S. in Computer Science - Information Systems (SCS3)

2.  Final term program will be open for new admits

Spring 2015

3.  Plan to complete all enrolled and returning students

All required computer science courses will remain available.  Therefore, enrolled and returning students will finish the degree as defined in the degree audit for their enrollment year.

4.  Reason for shelving

The faculty in Computer Science have determined that the Computer Science - Information Systems Concentration should be shelved.  The concentration has experienced low enrollment, with one student matriculating in the last 5 years.  The students with interests in this area would be better served with a Computer Science degree and a Business minor.

5.  Financial impact (if any) to the department and university

The financial impact on the department is minimal.  It will require marketing and promotional materials for the department to be updated (pamphlets, department website, etc.).
