Computer Applications and Office Systems

The Computer Applications and Office Systems (CAS/OS) program prepares students for careers in administrative support. Many students take our courses to improve their current job skills or to learn new skills to move into a new career.

Courses in CAS/OS are intended to meet business career needs for:

  • administrative assistants
  • secretaries, receptionists

  • web creation

Workers in these positions may perform a wide variety of duties as:

  • working with modern office technology to produce and file business documents
  • greeting the public
  • planning and scheduling
  • accounting
  • creating web pages

All CAS/OS courses are offered yearly with many offered every term. Courses are offered on campus, as hybrid (on ground and online) and online. Check the term schedule to see when the courses you want are offered.
