CICS 305 [UPDATE]

This course is the JYW option for CS and Informatics primary majors. Due to high demand from Spring and Summer 2023 graduating seniors, we will continue to manually process enrollment for graduating seniors only. If there are remaining seats, this course may open for self-enrollment later in the registration period. NOTE, secondary CS and Informatics majors should complete their JYW in their primary major and primary CS and Informatics majors may choose to take another department's JYW course in place of CICS 305. This will require a manual ARR fix, which will be processed closer to graduation.
