CIS student

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) department invites you to take advantage of the resources provided for CIS students:


All CIS students are encouraged to meet with a CIS Student Resource Specialist or CIS faculty advisor from time to time in order to make and/or update their academic plan. It is important that students keep in touch with an advisor in order to stay up-to-date and on track towards their goals.

Our CIS Student Resource Specialists are available to assist you in academic advising, evaluating transcripts, discussing our certificates and degrees, and finding the resources you need. Contact Jessie Levine at Rock Creek Campus or Michele Maxwell at Sylvania Campus.


Gary Coleman is the Employment Specialist for the Computer Information Systems department. He assists CIS students with co-operative education credits or internships as well as with job searching upon graduation. Please visit his website at http://spot.pcc.edu/comptech for more information.

Computer Labs

Computer Resource Centers (CRCs) are located at each campus and the SE Campus. Students must complete a short online orientation in order to use the lab and upon completion, a username and I.D. will be assigned. Labs are equipped with up-to-date computers and software so that you may do your homework at school.

CIS Tutoring Assistance
CIS students are also invited to use the Sylvania CIS/CS lab in TCB 308 in order to do homework and/or receive tutoring assistance in CIS and CS coursework. See http://spot.pcc.edu/computers/tutors.html for open lab hours and tutor availability.
