Associate of Applied Science Degree in Computer Information Systems with an emphasis in Programming

The A.A.S. Program (61 credit-hours) is primarily intended for those interested in a programming career. Completion of the recommended courses leads to the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Programming. Consequently, some courses in this program may not transfer to all senior institutions. Students who plan to transfer to a senior institution are strongly advised to correspond with the institution to which they plan to transfer. Completion of the required courses prepares the student for a position as a qualified and autonomous programmer.

In the Business Division curricula, courses prerequisite to another class require a minimum grade of C in order to advance to the next course.
