Professional Achievement Point Requirement (MIS Majors Only)
I have one quick update regarding professional achievement point which applies to MIS majors.
The MIS department has instituted a professional achievement point requirement for MIS majors. Students are required to accumulate 1,000 professional achievement points to meet this graduation requirement.
As a departmental policy, starting from this spring semester, all MIS majors who take MIS2502 are required to to earn a minimum of 200 professional achievement points by the end of the semester. Students who have earned a “C” or better but do not earn the minimum number of professional achievement points by the end of the semester will receive an “Incomplete” for this course regardless of performance on exams or class participation!
If a student earn earns the minimum number of professional achievement points within one year from the end of the semester and notifies their instructor, the instructor will update their grade from “Incomplete” to a traditional grade.
If a student fails to earn the minimum number of professional achievement points within one year from the end of the semester or does not notify their instructor that they have earned the minimum number of professional achievement points then their “Incomplete” will be changed to an “F” automatically by the system and will be the student’s permanent grade.
You are STRONGLY encouraged to, at a minimum, do the following to earn professional achievement points:
- Create an e-Portfolio and have it listed with the department.
- Become an active member of AIS and participate in professional development activities.
- Attend the IT Awards Reception (spring semester only) and the MIS Department’s Career Fair.
- Volunteer your time for department sponsored events.
- Discuss opportunities to earn points for projects with your MIS instructors.
