Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

As CEO of Computer Systems Institute, I wanted to update you on our recent appeal review with our accreditor ACICS, but before that, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued trust, commitment, and dedication to Computer Systems Institute.

Computer Systems Institute was founded in 1989 with the principles of preparing and educating the underserved students of our community for careers in high growth industries as well as, providing quality, affordable education to international students from all over the world. These principles are very much alive today and the results are seen every day through the thousands of successful graduates contributing to the growth and development of communities in over 100 countries.

On October 3, 2016, the ACICS Review Board of Appeals determined that the ACICS Council must reconsider its withdrawal-suspension action against CSI. I am very pleased with this decision and firmly believe that, when the Council reviews our Institution in December, we will receive a positive action.

We remain fully accredited by ACICS and CSI continues to be a SEVP certified school, fully authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.

CSI’s commitment to our students, staff, and faculty remains a high priority of mine and of all the staff and faculty as does maintaining open and transparent communication. I will continue to work tirelessly with ACICS to ensure that every one of our current, potential, and alumni students will have every opportunity that a CSI education brings.
