Computer Information Systems

Information Sessions

The CIS advisor, Michele Maxwell, offers information sessions for students who are new to Computer Information Systems.

Anyone is welcome! But students will gain the most from these sessions if they:

  1. Have applied to PCC and have a student ID number (a G number); and
  2. Have completed RD 115, WR 115, and MTH 20 or higher, or tested into the standard prerequisites of reading, writing and mathematics for general education classes

Students registered into CIS 120, CIS 121 and/or CIS 122 who are considering CIS as a possible major would also benefit from these information sessions.

The Information Session will cover the following topics:

  • An overview of the Computer Information Systems (CIS) program
  • The difference between CIS and Computer Science
  • How to use GRAD Plan
  • How to map out your first three terms of classes
  • School policies such as Satisfactory Academic Progress and Registration Deadlines
