Second-Stage Writing

Students majoring in Computer Science will fulfill the College's Second-Stage Writing Requirement by receiving at least a C in COMP 390 and satisfactorily completely its writing component. Note that this course is typically only offered in the Spring semester, and we strongly recommend students avoid studying abroad that semester to complete the requirement by the end of their junior year. Students who do not successfully complete the writing component of COMP 390 will be required to submit a portfolio of technical writing about their 300-level or above COMP electives. The portfolio should be submitted to the department chair of Computer Science no later than the midterm of the following semester.
