SFCC

Computer Science Department

The Information Systems & Computer Science Department at Spokane Falls maintains multiple missions:

  1. Provide a transfer capability for students who want to major in computer science, computer engineering, computer information systems or management information systems.

    Applicable classes include introduction to computer science CS I and CS II, OOP with C++, C, Java, beginning and advanced Visual BASIC, computer literacy and UNIX. Three transfer degree programs are offered:


  2. Provide a vocational Information Systems option. Vocational programs are featured in the SFCC Technical/Professional Web site. SFCC offers the following standard two-year (six-quarter) A.A.S. degree program:

    The department also offers several short-term certificates for add-on to other A.A.S. programs or for retraining - quick entry and exit:


  3. Provide general student service.
    The Computer Science department offers several courses, including computer literacy, that satisfy the computer needs of both transfer and vocational students.

    In addition, there are several self-paced classes in Computer Applications and operating systems. These classes are offered in an open lab environment. Many of these courses are also variable credit.

  4. Provide Community Service courses.
    The campus Business Technology Lab cooperates with Continuing Education and the Institute for Extended Learning to offer non-credit and seniors computer oriented courses.

We also offer programming courses designed for Computer Science professionals and high end users to upgrade their skills. These classes include C, OOP with C++, Unix, and beginning and advanced Visual Basic.

Class Credits

An A.A. degree from Spokane Falls is a means of completing the first two years of a four-year degree. This degree requires 90 quarter-credits of courses, many of which must satisfy general Liberal Arts requirements.

Transfer requirements vary for Computer Science related majors. If at all possible, the transfer university should be consulted for actual requirements.

The AS-T degree is a newer degree for community colleges in Washington State as of Fall 2000. Consult the AST Degree Worksheet for up-to-date information regarding requirements.

The AS-T degree is a means of completing the first two years of a four-year degree in specific math/science intensive programs. This degree requires 90 quarter-credits of course work, some of which must satisfy general Liberal Arts requirements (including a "^W" course). Other general university requirements will need to be met at the transfer institution.

Transfer requirements vary for Computer Engineering. Students should consult with an academic advisor at Spokane Falls and the appropriate department at the transfer university for actual requirements. The typical student schedules listed below are suggested for the Washington State University/ University of Idaho/ Gonzaga University Computer Engineering Consortium program.
