CCIS accepts students who demonstrate the skills and commitment necessary to be successful in our majors. We look at students’ academic record, related outside activities, and interest in relevant career paths. CCIS welcomes transfers who meet eligibility requirements and are dedicated to success in our academically rigorous program.
