Any Computer Science (CSCI) course not designated as a Computational Operations Research course (last digit in the course number is an 8), may not be used to satisfy degree requirements without prior written approval of the Director of Graduate Studies for Computational Operations Research.
There is no thesis option for this specialization.
Comprehensive Exam Requirement
See the Graduate Regulations.
Foreign Language Requirement
There is no foreign language requirement.
To be eligible to graduate, all students must achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in all courses undertaken for graduate credit at William & Mary after admission to the M.S. degree program specialization in Computational Operations Research. Students with less than a 3.0 average may appeal in writing to the department’s Committee on Admission, Retention, and Financial Aid to remain in the graduate program. The committee normally rejects appeals from students with less than a 2.75 grade point average. No credit toward a degree will be allowed for a course in which a student receives a grade below C (grade point = 2.0).
All requirements for the master’s degree must be completed within six years from the first term of enrollment in the master’s program, excluding periods of approved leave and military service. Requests for extension beyond the six-year limit must be filed following the procedures outlined in Time Limits for Degrees and Extensions in the Graduate Arts & Sciences Catalog.
