Computer Science Roadmap



Computer Science roadmap for Transfer/A.S.-T


This Roadmap is provided as a SAMPLE GUIDE showing what a full-time student's schedule MAY look like. There is no guarantee that all classes will be offered each semester or that classes will have space available. You must meet all prerequisite requirements prior to registering for a class.

Follow this roadmap to complete the A.S.-T degree in Computer Science and transfer to a four-year university in a Computer Science major. This is a sample schedule for planning your classes, but should be individualized for specific majors and universities.


Consult with a Los Medanos Counselor for help in planning your schedule. The Computer Science Department also offers A.S. degrees for Computer Support Specialist and Networking & Security. Visit the Computer Science website for more information.

Please check with your LMC Counselor and www.assist.org to modify the plan for you.


*MATH-070 is a pre- or co-requisite for PHYS-041, and is not counted in the 60 units total.


GE = CSUGE or IGETC classes. To complete the degree with no more than 60 units, students must follow the IGETC General Education requirements.


***Some universities require additional physics, chemistry, engineering or math classes for the Computer Science major. Computer Engineering majors may need to complete additional Engineering classes. Please see Engineering Roadmap, www.assist.org, and consult with your LMC Counselor.


This plan is for full-time students who can commit to 28-32 hours outside of class every week for studying and assignments. For successful completion, this plan will require your commitment and excellent time management skills.


Planning for transfer is a complex process. Please consult with your LMC Counselor, professors in your major classes, and university representatives every semester.


These plans do not guarantee acceptance to a university – other factors such as strength of academic preparation and related experience are also important.
