Industry and Professional Certification Licensures
Technical Certification Licensure is the awarding of university credits for IT professional and industry certifications (e.g., CompTIA A+, Security+, Net+, INET+, etc.; MCSE, MCSA, MCSD, MCAD, etc.; PMI, etc.) that support the BSIT degree program.
Students who have earned professional certification(s) or passed technical certification exam(s) may obtain college credits towards their equivalent BSIT courses.
