Students with previous programming experience may, with instructor consent, be exempt from completing IDSC 3101 and enroll immediately into IDSc 3102. Students should contact the IDSC 3102 instructor to discuss, and if approved, should submit an Academic Petition form to the Undergraduate Program office with instructor's approval noted on the form. Students who are exempt from IDSC 3101 may complete the major with 20 credits instead of 22.
