Program Overview

The CS fully online computer science degree program offers a blend of computer science theory and information technology practice courses.  Students in this degree program will begin their education by taking a set of common core courses, in such categories (but not limited to) as computer mathematics, programming with various computer languages, problem solving and overall knowledge of network communications. The computer science components of the program focus from programming design concepts to program implementation. Understanding abstract concepts carries on through all aspects of computer science and requires a strong and reinforced foundation for successful implementation.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees

Tuition, admissions and application fees vary by program and campus. The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

Information Technology and Information Systems are often referred to as IS&T for Information Systems and Technology. Both of these systems must work hand in hand to support one another and provide growth. IT is defined more as the infrastructure platform for IS to span out programming implementation. This builds further using abstract concepts and implementation.
