Here's what a current student has to say about the CIS program:

"I will graduate with a bachelor's degree in CIS. Mayville State University offers a small town community and small classes. This is the best university for anyone who wants one-on-one help from an instructor. At Mayville, I am not just a number in the crowd. This university, in my opinion, offers the best CIS program in the nation because they offer classes dealing with popular programming languages, web programming, database management, and network management. All of these classes have given me knowledge that will help me in the IT profession."
