Enrollment and Graduation Data
SUNY Brockport has offered programs of study in computing sciences since the early 1970's. At present, there are two distinct majors: Computer Science and Computer Information Systems.
Students admitted to the Computer Science major at The College are expected to choose either the Advanced Computing (AC) Track or the Software Development (SD) Track. Students who are unsure of which track they want to pursue (for example, first-year college students) may postpone declaring a specific track until they receive sufficient advisement. Such students are counted under the "No Track" column for student enrollment.
The Information Systems (IS) Track was re-designated as the Computer Information Systems major in January 2009. At that time, students enrolled in the Information Systems Track were given an opportunity to switch to the new major. No new students will be allowed to matriculate in the Information Systems Track and it will be discontinued once all enrolled students have graduated or have withdrawn from the program.
Students admitted at Isik University, Istanbul, Turkey under the dual diploma program agreement between Brockport and Isik are counted under the "No Track" column. These students, on completion at both universities of the degree requirements listed under the dual diploma program, are counted as graduating under the Computer Software Engineering (SE) Track of the Computer Science major.
The Advanced Computing (AC) Track of the Computer Science (CSC) major and the Computer Information Systems (CIS) major are currently accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
At The College, a semester represents 14 weeks of classes, exclusive of final examinations. In the Department of Computer Science, one credit (or semester hour) represents one class hour of lecture or two class hours of laboratory work per week. Also, one class hour represents 50 clock minutes. In addition to the regular fall and spring semesters, SUNY Brockport offers time-shortened winter and summer sessions of equivalent semester hours. In the table below, enrollment numbers for only fall semesters are presented.

At SUNY Brockport, students may graduate at the end of summer, fall, winter, or spring sessions. Accordingly, their month of graduation may be August, December, January, or May. In the table below, a year 20yy-YY stands for the period July 01, 20yy to June 30, 20YY. For example, the graduates for the year 2011-12 includes those who graduated in the period July 01, 2011 to June 30, 2012, i.e., in Summer 2011, Fall 2011, Winter 2012 and Spring 2012.
