Complete both of the ASD and ACIS Associate Certificates prior to declaring the CSC. Please use the CSC electives in the ASD and ACIS for faster completion.
The CSC was not designed to be completed in a full-time delivery model. Most students attempt the CSC in 3-4 years part-time. If your goal is quicker completion then please apply to the full-time CST Diploma. Please contact the program head for course planning if you want to attempt a faster track.
This Certificate is the third step in the laddered credentials toward the CST Diploma in Part-time Studies.
You are expected to have command of English and Math at a BC high school Grade 12 level or equivalent.
Be sure that you have the required knowledge and skills before enrolling in any course, each course has prerequisites.
Please complete both of the prerequisite Associate Certificates 'Applied Software Development (ASD)' and `Applied Computer Information Systems (ACIS)' prior to starting the CSC.
You will not obtain a Program Declaration for the CSC unless you have completed the ASD.

Please note that the first year of the full-time CST Diploma costs about half as much for tuition.Typical part-time students may complete the CSC over 3 years with 2 courses per term.
