Computer Information Science - Everest University Online
Do you like the idea of working with computers? Does developing and managing business computer applications, management information systems, databases, and computer networks interest you? As technology advances, the need for competent computer professionals may also increase. The Computer Information Systems program can equip you with the valuable skills to complete essential operating and programming tasks.
The comprehensive computer courses are built around real-world experience, with classes providing current and relevant instruction on computer applications. The curriculum is designed to enhance job skills and improve opportunities for career advancement.
The Computer Information Science program includes instruction on the following:
Principles of accounting
Database concepts and applications
Microcomputer operating systems
You can learn skills that enable you to oversee the operation of computer hardware systems, including mainframes, minicomputers, or networks of personal computers. You may also be educated to anticipate problems and take preventive action, as well as solve problems that occur during operations. Opportunities may be best for graduates with a formal computer-related education, a familiarity with a variety of operating systems, and up-to-date knowledge of the latest technology. The areas of network operation, user support and database management provide excellent prospects for employment.
Some career opportunities include:
* Schedules subject to change. Program versions may vary by campus. Please contact the campus for current programs and schedules.

The completion rate data presented here is calculated using the following assumptions:
The Enrollment Cohort includes all students who started in a program for the first time during the enrollment cohort (financial aid award year, “FA AY”). Re-entries are not considered a “start” in the enrollment cohort (FA AY) if they attended the program in a previous enrollment cohort (FA AY), regardless of how long it has been since their prior attendance.
The enrollment cohort excludes any students that died, if applicable. The enrollment cohort does not exclude permanently disabled students who were unable to continue on at least a half-time basis.
Students are considered completers if they became a graduate in the program. Students with any status other than graduate are considered non-completers.
These calculations use the federal financial aid definition of full-time, and less than full time (number of credits) to determine the cohort the student’s completion information will be calculated in. The number of credits the student is enrolled in on the student’s first day of attendance is used to determine the student’s status. As such, students are considered full-time if they are taking 12 credits or more, and considered less than full time if they are taking less than 12 credits. All modular students are considered full time.
The following calculations are used to display completion information based on the students FT or less than FT status:
(# of full time students in enrollment cohort (“EC”) who completed within 100% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
(# of full time students in EC who completed within 150% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
(# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 200% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
(# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 300% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
These disclosures reflect completion percentages for the enrollment cohort (by financial aid award year, July 1- June 30) that will provide the most recent group of completers for the longer of the two completion percentages. Specifically, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the full-time students to have had enough time to complete 150% of their program length; and, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the less than full-time students to have had time to complete 300% of their program length. As such, enrollment cohorts may vary dependent on program length.
