This one-year program provides students with skills to operate and use computers in business environments. It is intended mainly to serve people who do not wish to earn an associate's degree but who want to acquire skill and knowledge in computer applications.
Students entering the program are expected to possess full command of English, mathematics skills through high school algebra, and a minimum touch keyboarding level of 25 words a minute. Students lacking such keyboarding skills may acquire them by taking GRCC's BA 130 Computer Keyboarding before enrolling in the program. Strict adherence to the ethics of computer usage is expected of all Computer Applications students.
All the courses in this program can be applied toward an associate's degree. See the description of the Computer Applications Technology program (Code 109) for a list of associate's degree requirements. Some advanced standing credit may be granted to entering graduates of high school vocational programs that are members of the Kent Metropolitan Articulation Project.
