Why ITI?

The Information Technology Institute (ITI) is a new three-semester program that launched Fall 2018. Classes are scheduled in afternoon blocks, at one campus. Fall and Spring semesters consist of two 8-week sessions. Each session has two back-to-back classes. The 9-week Summer session consists of a Capstone class and an optional internship. All of your classes are set for the whole program.

Reach your goals quicker

With a set schedule and guaranteed classes, you’ll be able to earn your certificate in Network Administration in one year. After you earn your certificate, you can go on to earn your AAS degree in as little as two more semesters.
