Computer Information Systems Transfer/Information Systems Transfer

Program Goals Statement

Students have the flexibility to individualize this transfer program to meet the requirements of many four-year colleges and universities.

Program information

• Bristol offers many technical courses frequently not available at four-year institutions. 

• Transfer credit for any Computer Information Systems (CIS or CIT) course must be approved by the CI Department Chair or by a full-time CI faculty member. 

Note: Students may be required to obtain and use specific hardware, operating systems, or applications.

Recommendations 

• Students should consider CIS 111 as their first course unless they have previous computer experience or took computer courses in high school. CIS 111 may be a good transfer course. 

After Bristol

• Recent graduates have transferred to Bridgewater State College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Bryant University, and University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

• Bristol participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer. For a complete listing of eligible MassTransfer programs and current Bristol articulation agreements, visit the Transfer Affairs website at www.BristolCC.edu/transfer
