Computer Information Systems

Computer Information Systems certificate

The CIS certificate is designed to meet the needs of small companies who require employees with some computer experience.

Entrance requirements

Entrance requirements for the CIS certificate are the same as those for the BCIS degree. Please see the BCIS section for complete details.

Students who do not meet these requirements might consider the Computer Information Systems Studies program path.

When to apply

Applications are accepted for entrance to the Fall, Winter, and Summer semesters. For application deadlines, see Specific intake application process.

How to apply

1. Submit the application fee along with your UFV application for admission form to the Office of the Registrar (OReg). You can apply online or download an application form at ufv.ca/admissions/admissions/apply. Application forms are also available from any OReg or Student Services office.

Additional documents required for a complete application:
• Proof of B.C. secondary school graduation or equivalent, or permission from the program head.
• Transcript (or interim transcript) showing grade/course achievement as per entrance requirements.

• An official transcript from every post-secondary institution you have attended. To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly to UFV from the originating institution; see the Transfer Credit section for details. Unofficial copies may accompany the application form if official transcripts have been ordered.

2. Upon admission to the program you will be provided with registration information. A deposit is required when you register (see the Fees and Other Costs section). The deposit will be applied to the tuition fees. Final payment of all course fees is due the end of the second week of classes.

3. In some cases where interim transcripts are submitted, an admission decision may be made conditional upon completion of academic requirements. Proof of completion of entrance requirements is due by the end of the first week in August.

Program outline

The CIS certificate is available to students who have completed any 30 credits from the BCIS degree offerings, including degree program non-CIS courses, at least one half of which must be CIS or COMP courses. Students who wish to attain the CIS certificate can choose any 30 credits that meet these requirements, or they may choose the Web Design and Animation option. Students entering the program without any computer literacy skills will need to take CIS 100.

Students who wish to continue on to attain the diploma or degree are advised to take the courses listed for the first year of the degree or to take courses that apply as course requirements to the diploma or degree.
