DESCRIPTION: WebBSIT is a high-quality Bachelor of Science Degree program in Information Technology designed to meet your needs for any time, any place learning. Georgia’s WebBSIT program produces Information Technology graduates with the knowledge, skills and abilities required to meet the needs of the state’s employers.
Courses are available via the Internet, so you can learn wherever you have Internet connection and a computer - at home, at work or on the road. The program is designed to provide access to a Bachelor of Science Degree program for those who might otherwise be unable to pursue a college education, including IT professionals who want to complete their degrees; stay-at-home parents who want to upgrade their skills and separating or active military personnel. Plus, WebBSIT is offered by accredited Georgia institutions - the same colleges and universities you would attend in person to get a Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Technology.
ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS: All WebBSIT students must be enrolled at one of the five WebBSIT institutions. Students from other institutions who wish to take a single course may do so as a transient student on a space-available basis. The E-tuition rate applies to all WebBSIT courses whether taken singly or as part of the program.
The WebBSIT is a Bachelor degree, so you will have to complete a general education curriculum. This is typically the first two years of an undergraduate degree, including basic courses such as math, science, history, English and an IT concentration (Area F). IT Area F courses are available online through the WebBSIT program.
The First Step: Fill out and submit the inquiry form.
Spaces are limited in the WebBSIT courses, so it is strongly recommended that you contact the WebBSIT Program using the Inquiry Form before applying to one of the WebBSIT institutions. Through this correspondence, you will be advised on the best admissions path, potentially saving you the expense of applying to multiple institutions and the frustration of failing to get a space in the program.
The Second Step: Submit your information to a WebBSIT Advisor to begin to apply for admission.
