*If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed transferable college credit(s) at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree by 1 credit. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

**If you have earned 60 or more credits and met all the other Computer Science requirements, you only need to select one Program Elective; otherwise you must select two Program Electives.  To insure timely graduation, contact you Program Coordinator for advisement.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. Successfully transfer to a four-year or upper division Information Systems Management program and be as successful as the native students. The success will be measured by: their overall GPA will be the same or higher as native students; their completion rate will be the same or higher as native students.

Program Description:

This degree program provides opportunities for students who wish to continue their studies at a four-year institution in fields such as computer science, computer information sciences, or information systems management. Students who choose this curriculum and desire to transfer courses should speak with the program coordinator. The courses in this curriculum assume that the student has a background that includes algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Students who do not meet these requirements can take the required prerequisite courses at CCBC after placement testing.
