Technology, Information, Theory & Systems

The Department of Computer Science is located at Hunter's 68th street campus on the upper east side of Manhattan. Providing students with outstanding preparation both for employment as computer professionals and for future graduate study, the department expects students to construct creative solutions to challenging problems in a variety of contexts. The small but diverse faculty works closely with students in an open and collegial atmosphere. Our curriculum focuses on hands-on programming skills as well as the mathematics of computer science— the theoretical foundations that support current technology and will guide its future development.

Tuesday, October 14 -- Last day to submit a "DAAF FORM" (Graduation Audit) to the Registrar/Hunter ONe Stop for Winter2015 graduation.

Because of Columbus Day weekend, the Department Office will be closed on October 11, 12 and 13.  Students should drop off their COMPLETED DAAFs in Room 1008 HN for Departmental Approval by Wednesday, October 8 to insure they are signed and ready to be brought down to ONESTOP by the 10/14 deadline.

Thursday, November 6 -- Last day to withdraw from a class with a grade of "W" on your transcript.


Stay tuned for information about Fall 2014 test out times/dates.  FOr general information about requirements and policies, see below...

The Department of Computer Science offers exceptionally well-prepared students the opportunity to receive credit by examination for CSCI 127 (Introduction to Computer Science); CSCI 135 (Analysis & Design 1/C++ Programming) and CSCI 150 (Discrete Structures).

Learn more about the Computer Science's Test-out policy and register for the exams.


Learn about its rules, policies and regulations (and prevent your account from being inadvertently annulled) and download schedules for the "G"-Lab and Bletchley Park (Room 1000-J) to find room availability for the Fall '13 semester.
