Why ITI?

The Information Technology Institute (ITI) is a new program starting Fall 2018. Classes are scheduled in afternoon blocks, at one campus. Fall and Spring semesters consist of two back-to-back classes in two 8-week sessions (equaling 4 classes each semester). All of your classes are set for the whole program. Finish in the Summer with a Capstone class and an optional internship. Get through the program in one year. After you earn your certificate, you can go on to earn your AAS degree in as little as two more semesters.
