Purpose

The Administrative Information Technology (AIT) Program prepares individuals for high-demand careers needed in today’s computerized workplace.  The AIT Program offers a one-year Certificate, a two-year Associate of Applied Science Degree and a Local Articulation Enhanced Skills Certificate.  The one-year Certificate Program is designed to prepare individuals for entry-level office information technology careers by providing cutting-edge training in the use of currently popular software packages and preparation for the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification.  The two-year Associate of Applied Science Degree is for individuals preparing for advanced office information technology careers in office and business management, executive assistant, computer project administration, and medical office administration.  Students will be required to take the appropriate MOS exam(s) before the end of each semester as applicable to individual courses (see course descriptions in back of catalog).  Students who have completed the A.A.S. degree may receive advanced training in management skills leading to an Enhanced Skills Certificate.  Administrative Information Technology is a Local Articulation program.


Admission Requirements

Students are admitted to the AIT program through the regular college admission procedures (see Admission Regulations section).  Students will receive an A.A.S. degree upon satisfactory completion of the program of study and upon making formal application for graduation (see Curricula section).


Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Requirements

The AIT program carries two award options, the Level 1 one-year Certificate and the two-year Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.  College Board policy requires all students to take the TSI Assessment examination.  Students pursuing the Level 1 one-year Certificate do not have to pass the TSI Assessment; however, those not scoring at the ENGL 0302 and/or MATH 0302 level are strongly encouraged to enroll in the appropriate developmental course(s).

Students who wish to pursue the two-year certificate or A.A.S. degree must meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.
