All CSE major requirements and technical electives except CSE 197, 198 or 199 must be taken for a letter grade. Students may not graduate with an F grade in a course used to meet degree requirements. Students may graduate with a D grade, if they meet the 2.0 grade point average in upper division courses in the major, including technical electives.
In addition, each student must satisfy general education course requirements determined by the student's college, as well as major requirements determined by the department. The six colleges at UCSD require widely different numbers of general education courses. Check out your college general education requirements.
