Computer Science Eligibility PDF Print E-mail

If you have a computer science degree, you may be confused about whether or not you are eligible for the patent bar.  The following list makes it easy to figure out.  If you have one of the following degrees, awarded on or after the date of accreditation (listed in brackets, e.g., [2008]), you are eligible to take the exam under Category A.  If your computer science degree is not listed, or you received it before your program was accredited, you may still be eligible under Category B.  See this page for more information about eligibility in general.
