The Department offers students an opportunity to test out and gain credit for several of our courses. The list for CSIS is given below. All exams are centralized at the Center for Undergraduate Business Advising (CUBA). Please contact the Director of CUBA for details.

 CSC125 - Internet and Webpage design (3 credit hours). Are you comfortable with HTML and CSS but don't have formal credentials to vouch for your knowledge? Then, this exam will validate your knowledge. Students will not be able to use the Internet as a resource during the exam. This course is part of the University Studies block.

CSC199 Introduction to Information Technology (3 credit hours). This is useful for students who are already well-versed in the Microsoft Office Suite. The exam is timed and consists of 5 components - Concepts, MS-Word, MS-Excel, MS-Access and MS-PowerPoint. The fee for this is $15, payable in advance at Sparks Hall. You must also purchase an access code from the bookstore for $10-15. This code is for one-time use only. This course is part of the University Studies block.

CIS343 - Business Statistics II (2 credit hours). This is for students who claim expertise in Statistics - specifically, Statistical Inference. To qualify to take this exam, students must have taken and passed a qualifying introductory statistics course at another institution that that teaches the same concepts taught in this class. The Center for Undergraduate Business Advising determines which classes meet this requirement.
