Advising Notes

Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet the requirements of first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete the program. The classes designed to assist students in reaching the skill level necessary to enter the certificate and degree programs are computer applications, MATH 0990. Any class in the preparatory skills may be waived for students who can demonstrate equivalent skills.

It is the student’s responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before class may be taken. Students who want to challenge the exam are advised to review the information on the CSIS Department website.   An 80% or higher is required on each section of the test. Once the exam is passed, a P is posted to the transcript and credit is awarded.

Cooperative Education is SLCC’s strategy for recognizing and rewarding new learning associated with student-related employment in a business, industrial or government work environment. Credit earned from MGT 2000 is applied toward graduation requirements as business elective credits. The department strongly recommends that students enhance their employment opportunities through Cooperative Education as soon as skills permit, to complement the certificate or degree. Contact CO-OP Education at 801-957-4014.
