Program Requirements

Students should follow the degree requirements listed in the Academic Catalog appropriate to the year in which they began the program.


Curriculum requirements for the BSIT program may change from year to year. Students' requirements are determined based on the academic year in which they began the program declared as a BSIT major. Degree requirements generally do not change once a student is declared a BSIT major until graduation, except if the student does not attend KSU for 3 consecutive semesters (including summer) or if the student requests a change of catalog year to a newer set of requirements. Students may update to any newer set of academic requirements if they wish.

  • The Academic Catalog contains the academic requirements and policies to obtain a degree of a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, and all other advising material (curriculum sheets, DegreeWorks) are based on this.
  • Curriculum sheets can be found on the CCSE Academic Advising Office website. Curriculum sheets are helpful guides to be used along with meeting an academic advisor and DegreeWorks, and are subject to change. Always double check with an academic advisor.
  • Prerequisites used in registration for courses follow the latest approved prerequisites. Therefore, what may be listed as the prerequisite on a 2015 academic year curriculum sheet may not be the prerequisite required in registering for the Fall 2018 semester. Prerequisites should be updated in the catalog upon approval. Again, always check with an academic advisor.
