Given recent changes in student demand, new admissions to the AAS Business Computer Information Systems (BCIS) degree have been suspended. Students currently in the AAS-BCIS program will have their full catalog term to complete the program, and we have asked the CBPP advisors to reach out to each one of you to confirm your academic plan. You are strongly encouraged to set an appointment and meet with a College of Business and Public Policy advisor.
New students interested in earning an AAS in BCIS will be directed to the new Occupational Endorsement Certificate (OEC) in Business Analytics (BA), the AAS General Business degree (GB), or the 4-year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs. Many of the courses offered in the OEC program will be transferable to the AAS General Business degree (GB) and the 4-year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs. If you are declaring the OEC and are considering enrolling in the AAS General Business or a BBA degree, either now or after you complete your OEC, please see your advisor to ensure you map your courses accordingly.
