The BS Mathematics program is a four-year program that provides a solid undergraduate preparation in mathematics. The curriculum covers not only the fundamentals and abstract concepts in mathematics but also important and emerging fields in applied mathematics.

The BS Computer Science program, which was instituted in 1996, trains students to become experts in many areas of theoretical computer science. Graduates have become highly skilled in software development and system analysis.

RETENTION POLICY
 
1. A BS Computer Science student must pass the required minimum number of Math and Computer Science courses per semester according to the following table:
 
No. of CmSc and Math courses enrolled in Minimum No. of courses to pass
 1 1
6 or more 

2. A Student who fails to satisfy provision No. 1 for two consecutive terms (including Summer) shall be disqualified from the program.

3. A student must pass Math 17, CMSC 12 and CMSC 55 in two takes at most (including Summer); otherwise he/she shall be disqualified from the program.

4. If, after six semesters of enrollment in the said courses, the student fails to complete all these subjects (Math 17, CMSC 12 and CMSC 55), the student is automatically disqualified from the program.
