The Management Information Systems degree requires a minimum of three hours of Internship Services course work consisting of an individualized field experience (IPL 300) or an individual project (IPL 301). Students are encouraged to complete six hours of Internship Services. All six hours can be used to fulfill ECCE requirements. After consultation with their Internship Services advisor, students may petition to waive the three hour requirement using the student petition form. A petition to substitute an alternative ECCE course will only be approved in exceptional cases.

Credit for Prior Learning (IPL 305) may not be used by College of Business and Management students to fulfill degree requirements. Students with Health Care Informatics Concentration will take ECCE Social Health Care Informatics (3 hours) instead of US Communities or Global Awareness. They also complete 6 hours of ECCE/Internship Services in the area of Health Care Informatics.

Students must complete a minimum of 18 hours in Management Information Systems prefix courses (MIS) at the UIS College of Business and Management.
