Beginning in the Spring 2009, all entering CIT majors taking one or more CIT courses during the day will be required to purchase a Dell laptop that satisfies certain minimum specifications. The specifications will be provided students when they are accepted so they can determine whether they have a laptop that meets the requirements. In the event they don't, a link will be provided to the Dell website so that students can purchase a computer directly from the company. Dell will accept Master Card/Visa or will also try to arrange a payment plan.
Upon the successful completion of requirements for this program, the degree of Associate in Science in Computer Information Technologies will be awarded.
