Description of Program:

The A.S. in Computer Information Systems prepares you as entry-level computer programmer, software applications specialist, data processing assistant, and/or Internet/Web design assistant. SFSC has developed an "articulation" agreement with Webber International University, Babson Park, FL. If you are an SFSC graduate of the A.S. degree in Computer Information Systems, this agreement affords you the opportunity to transfer all the listed courses and attend Webber with junior standing toward a B.S. degree in Computer Information Systems. If you want to transfer to Webber upon completion of your A.S. degree, you should first consult with SFSC and Webber representatives regarding program requirements.
