Information Systems Technology

Admission Requirements:  All IST applicants must complete the ACT or ACCUPLACER exam. Students not meeting the minimum math entrance score will be advised that additional semesters may be necessary in order to ensure successful completion of the program. Students needing extra time may not be able to maintain full-time enrollment status, which may, in turn, affect financial aid.  If the student is seeking a diploma only, two years would be required for completion.

Physical Requirements:  Students in this program may be required to lift 50 lbs. and to demonstrate visual color discrimination.

Computer Requirements:  This program requires a laptop computer so that you can effectively integrate computing skills with your technical education. Many resources that instructors assign are online or require specialty software. To address these needs, Mitchell Tech requires that students entering this program purchase their laptops from Mitchell Tech. The cost for an Mitchell Tech laptop averages about $1,000 for this program. Please be aware that our machines come fully loaded with the software required for this program.

Whether it's Microsoft Office, or a specialty software for a technical program, your needs will be met by your Mitchell Tech laptop. And our laptops are serviced for free by our Technology office. You will not be able to bring a laptop from home into an Mitchell Tech laptop program as we cannot provide support services for every make and model of laptop. Please consider this carefully before making any laptop purchase and check with the Admissions office for more details.
