Spring 2005 Computer Literacy Online
Welcome Letter

Spring 2005

Dear Online Student,

Welcome to CIS 101, Reference # 9469, Computer Literacy, on the Web.  I hope you find this course interesting and use this as an opportunity to acquire another skill for your portfolio.  Because of the nature of this course, it is important that you respect and honor the views of your peers as you would have them do yours.  

Read this letter carefully.  This course runs from January 21st through May 15, 2005..

Important:  Due due an oversight, the Distance Learning office failed to schedule an on campus orientation and mail a notification letter to you.  As a result, there is NO on campus orientation on the 21st for this section.

You will, however, need to come to campus to purchase your textbook package.  If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to call me (301) 322-0771 or send me an email at bbugg@pgcc.edu
