Entrance Requirements

Please complete COMP 1002 before submitting your ACIS program declaration.

Please Note: Students who are working toward or who have completed the Applied Computer Applications, ACA associate certificate will not be given approval for ACIS. This is due to the potential of significant elective topic duplication with: MS Windows, MS Office, Web Development and Business Communication.

Students completing only one (1) course per term and who plan to move on to the Computer Systems Certificate (CSC), should complete ACIS to prior to CSC, as each program has a five (5) year completion limit.

Important Notice for students on limited timelines
Prior to submitting a program declaration, those on limited timelines who require a program letter (e.g. with student loans or limited sponsorship) must first contact the department directly to receive a signed Course Planning Document, which they will be required to attach to their online declaration.

Otherwise students must first complete COMP 1002 before declaring ACIS.
