  • Students who declare Computer and Information Science as their major are considered Pre-Majors. On completion of the following courses: CS 161, CS 162, CS 260, CS 250, and CS 251, students must formally apply for admission to the Computer Science program.  Students must achieve a GPA of 2.60 or better in these courses and the courses must be taken for a grade of C- or better.  Courses can be retaken once, but all grades will be used to compute GPA.
  • All required CS and Math courses listed in the note above must be taken for a letter grade and passed with a C- or better.


  • For U of O's Bachelor's Degree Requirements, refer to General Education. For PCC courses that transfer to U of O, refer to Transfer Equivalencies.
  • If you plan to earn an AAOT degree, all U of O general education requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
