Welcome to COMP101

Welcome back to Carolina! This Spring we'll go from zero-to-programmers with no prior programming experience expected. COMP101 is open to and taken by all majors, not just those thinking about concentrating in Computer Science. Learning computer programming is a rewarding, challenging, and increasingly valuable skill. If you are a curious soul who enjoys creative problem solving: you're in the right place.

You should assume this course carries a MATH110 - College Algebra prerequisite requirement. If you do not have credit for MATH110, whether at UNC or transferred in, or you are not very comfortable with the Algebra concepts covered in Khan Academy's Algebra section you are advised to wait to enroll in COMP101 until after you have completed MATH110.

If you have significant prior programming experience, be it teaching yourself, taking AP Computer Science, or some equivalent, you may want to skip to COMP110 or COMP401.

If you are not currently enrolled in the course and are hoping to get in you must show up to class on the first lecture and fill out a form announced in class. We are not able to accept late adds to the course this semester.
