DRAFT Computer Science Transfer Guidelines

The ACM Committee for Computing Education in Community Colleges (CCECC) is updating its 2009 Guidelines for Associate-Degree Transfer Curriculum in Computer Science. The update is based on ACM's CS2013 curriculum guidelines and includes contemporary cybersecurity content. A final draft, called IronDog, is available for public review and comment through November 30, 2016.

To date, over 50 community college and university computing educators contributed to the creation of this version as either members of the task force who met virtually in teams over the course of months or through participating in a half day workshop at SIGCSE 2016 in Memphis, TN or stopped by the poster session at ITiCSE 2016 in Arequipa, Peru. Comments from the first public review and comment period for the initial draft, StrawDog, have been processed to produce the second and last draft, IronDog.

We continue to engage the global community by requesting constructive feedback on IronDog, our last draft. Thank you for your feedback!
