CIS Diploma

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) diploma program, four semesters with five courses in each semester, gives you an introduction to the various areas of computing, specifically within an organization or business.

The CIS diploma is the first two years of the BCIS degree. Students wanting to enter or return to the workforce quickly can complete the CIS diploma and then return (either full-time or part-time) to complete the BCIS degree. If you have time before you rejoin the workforce, start directly in the BCIS degree.
