The BIS Transfer Transition Course - listed as UNIV 304 - is continuing to grow in popularity among new and continuing BIS students. The hybrid course meets in-person for only two Saturdays per semester and offers a great opportunity to earn upper division credit while learning more about the BIS program and Mason services. Many students appreciate the chance to network with peer BIS students in a classroom setting. Open class discussions and plenty of down time over lunch provide BIS students with a forum to discuss concerns, pose questions to a panel of BIS faculty, and interact with a panel of BIS alumni.
BIS recruits several students finishing their final semester in the program to act as UNIV 304 Peer Mentors. These enthusiastic folks can be seen moving quickly through the classroom to help students with everything from computer use to BIS program questions.
