I have financial obligations. Will work interfere with my studies?
COMSC recognizes the challenges of balancing academic work and financial obligations when studying for a higher degree. The COMSC program is difficult and rigorous, and students should make appropriate plans when attempting to successfully complete the COMSC curriculum. Many students work part time while attending the full time program. Students should also investigate financial aid.
Can I take other courses outside of the curriculum?
To ensure academic performance is not compromised, the COMSC Program will not permit any student to enroll for more than 15 credits per semester at Hunter College and any other school. This includes courses needed to satisfy conditions of acceptance and education courses. Students are advised to enroll in courses to satisfy conditions of acceptance either the summer session prior to the first semester of the first year or in the summer session between the first and second year. This will allow ample time for students to complete the requirement by the end of the first year following matriculation as the date of matriculation is considered the Fall semester.
