Accreditation of Computer Science Degree

I intend to take the patent bar based upon a certain number of credits in computer science taken at Rutgers University.  Apparently, the Rutgers computer science program is not accredited by the CSAC or otherwise(although DeVri is, a local Vo-tech school), and I am concerned.  If I take the patent bar based upon a certain number of credits in computer science, does the program need to be accredited?  According to the general requirements bulletin it does not appear so. . .

Almost certainly the issue will be your coursework other than computer science including the physics/chemistry two course with lab sequence.   But your computer science courses don't need to be from an accredited program.  That would be some kind of catch 22 nightmare.

What other issues will arise?  I have physics credits and two consecutive chemistry classes to apply towards option four. . . .

Do the physics and chemistry lab credits apply?  It's been a while since I read the requirements...

iv. Option 4: 40 semester hours in a combination consisting of the following:
 8 semester hours of chemistry or 8 semester hours of physics, and
 32 semester hours of chemistry, physics, biology, botany, microbiology, molecular biology,
engineering. (For Computer Science, see other acceptable course work.)
 The 8 semester hours of chemistry or 8 semester hours of physics must be obtained in two
sequential courses, each course including a lab. Only courses for science or engineering
majors will be accepted. For Computer Science, see other "Other Acceptable Course
Work."
All acceptable coursework for Options 2 and 4 must be for science or engineering majors.
