Also, there are a number of trade schools with offerings that you might find attractive.

The Best Value Computer Information Systems Undergraduate Certificate Schools in North Carolina ranking is one of many tools that Computer Science Degree Search has developed to help you make your educational decision. Our analysis looked at 7 schools in North Carolina to see which undergraduate certificate programs offered the best value experiences for CIS students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
