Information sessions

The Sylvania Campus CIS advisor, Michele Maxwell, offers information sessions for students who are considering a major in Computer Information Systems (CIS).

Please note that Computer Information Systems and Computer Science are two completely different majors. Not one CIS class transfers towards a computer science requirement in a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

The information session covers the following topics:

  • The difference between Computer Information Systems and Computer Science.
  • An overview of the CIS certificates and Associate of Applied Science degrees PCC offers and the jobs they lead to.
  • Transfer options for CIS students.
  • How to map out your first term of classes.
  • School policies such as satisfactory academic progress and registration deadlines.
