CS is Computer Science - CIS is Computer Information Systems. Are they different? Mostly yes: CIS is more about business/management and CS is more about science (theory and abstraction). The main programming language of CIS is still COBOL while C++ still rules CS (there are exceptions, of course). At the univerisity i graduated from (CS major), the CS drop outs usually became CIS majors. Both programs required higher math, but CIS had easier calculus courses. They also had/have better facilities and more money than the CS department. Damned managers. :D
