This program is designed for students who plan to continue a Baccalaureate degree at South Texas College or to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Baccalaureate degree in Computer Information Systems. It is also designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the field of computer information systems. The curriculum of the computer information systems degree program focuses on computer programming, business and general education cores of studies.

Students who wish to declare this transfer major should ask for program planning assistance from a Computer Information Systems program advisor. Transfer institutions vary in lower division (first two years of college) major department requirements. Meeting the Associate of Science degree requirements does not automatically guarantee that all four-year colleges will accept each and every course toward their degree plan. It is imperative that students work closely with departmental faculty and the four-year college faculty in determining transferability of courses.
