The integration of computers into the workplace is progressing at a rapid pace. Graduates of the computer information systems (CIS) program are well positioned to serve the growing needs and demands of the field. A strong foundation of programming, database, and networking is provided. Computer information systems graduates may enter directly into either the cyber security (BTech), information technology: applications software development (BTech), information technology: network administration (BTech), information technology: web development (BTech), or technology management (BBA) degree program.
Computer Information Systems has a Tool/Supplies Lending Program
The beginning of the semester can bring with it a lot of expenses. There is a program that may be able to help.
The tools/supplies lending program is an initiative to ensure the academic success of our students. The purpose of the loan program is to temporarily lend items.
Funded through a Title III Department of Education Strengthening Institutions Grant, this program provides tools/supplies for students who are not able to afford to immediately purchase them. If a non-disposable item, these need to be returned at the end of the semester.
Students interested in utilizing the program must complete an application. The program is open to eligible students who are in need, although priority is given to first-year students.
Tools/supplies are lent on a first-come, first-served basis for the entire semester to eligible students. There is no cost for the student to participate in this program.
Participating students are given a contract detailing the tools/supplies they have been loaned and when these are due to be returned.
This program has the following items that can be borrowed: Laptop
