General Education Addendum

CIAT requires a minimum 17 semester units of General Education (GE) completed as part of the Associate of Applied Science in Information Systems – Networking Concentration (AASCIS-NC) program.

In your original enrollment agreement, you may have signed and agreed to transfer all GE courses from another accredited university to CIAT to meet the graduation requirement. However, we understand that your plans may have changed since then.


  • If you would like to take your GE classes with us, and your original enrollment agreement did NOT include GE classes, there will be an additional cost added to the original signed tuition amount and change to the expected completion date stated on the enrollment agreement.
  • If your original enrollment agreement DID include the GE classes, you will not incur any additional costs UNLESS you are adding more GE classes than you originally requested.

    *General Education courses are based on a rate of $585.00 per semester unit. Books are not included in the cost of the program.

    Tuition and fees must be paid in full at least 14 business days prior to the start of class. Tuition includes class instruction and required materials and may be paid using a major credit card, debit card or, check. If you are using education benefits, funding documentation (such as tuition vouchers, approved purchase orders or other approved forms of payment), are also due 14 business days prior to the start of class. If a student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund.

    The full tuition is $42,705.00 for the Degree Program, if all courses, including GE are taken at CIAT.  This charge is broken into two Academic Years.  The first year (7 technical courses and 3 GE courses for 37 units) is $21,645.00.  The second year (7 technical courses and 2 GE courses for 36 units) is $21,060.00. This is assuming that the student takes three 3-unit General Education courses during the first year and two 4-unit courses during the second year. In lieu of taking two 4-unit GE courses, the student may elect to take three 3-unit GE courses, which will increase the tuition for the second year to $21,645.00 and a total cost for the program of $43,290.00.
