Information Systems, Certificate
The Certificate in Information Systems is available to all students at UW-Eau Claire except IS majors and minors, for whom it would be redundant. It is designed to complement majors in every area of study without the investment required for a minor.

Other students will obtain an application form from the IS department office, Schneider 404, and return the completed application to that office by October 30 or March 30 of the semester in which they expect to complete the requirements. Shortly after final grades have been submitted to the Registrar, official certificates are mailed to successful applicants in January and June.
