- Major Option = 36
- Minor or 2nd Major = 24
- For specific requirements see #3 of Bachelor of Science Degree requirements. Selecting a minor or second major less than or greater than 24 hours will alter the number of unrestricted electives.
- Minimum total hours required coursework = 113
- Unrestricted electives in 120 hour program = 7
- Minimum total hours required for BS in Applied Computer Science = 120
- All UNK degrees require a minimum of 120 hours. Forty (40) of the hours required for all UNK degrees must be upper division hours, which are courses numbered 300 or above taken at a 4-year college or university.

All courses in this major require a minimum grade of "C". In this option, prerequisites are fulfilled when the prerequisite courses have been passed with a "C" or above.
