Program Design

The Management Information Systems associate degree program is offered to students who would like to continue their studies at another college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree. This program requires a mixture of business, information systems and liberal arts and sciences courses, which students would normally take the first two years at a baccalaureate institution. Students planning to transfer should consult a counselor or faculty advisor about their choice of electives before selecting specific courses.

Students should be familiar with the requirements of the institution to which they will transfer credits. We encourage you to select your transfer college or university as early as possible. Also, you should see an advisor before choosing elective courses in this associate degree program because each institution may have specific degree requirements.


Students may enroll in this program full- or part-time. Students should have a sound foundation in mathematics, problem solving and communication skills.
