The ASIT requires the successful completion of 60 credit hours of instruction at the lower level (freshman and sophomore years).
The ASIT places a strong emphasis on General Education courses that will provide a foundation for entry to the BSIT program. General Education courses are designed to broaden a student’s educational foundation. They include courses in such areas as communications, English, government, history, psychology, sociology, mathematics, and statistics.
A student must complete at least 15 credit hours in General Education to receive an ASIT degree. A student must also complete 18 credit hours in Information Technology core courses. The remaining credit hours consist of elective courses.
