Computer Competency Graduation Requirement

Fulfilling the Computer Competency Requirement

CTX students who entered before Fall 2013 must either successfully complete and pass CIS 1300C Technology in the Digital Age, or pass the Computer Competency Exam as a requirement for graduation.

What are my options, and what's the difference between them?

Option 1: Successful completion of CIS 1301 Introduction to Personal Computing

Students who opt to take the course receive 3 academic credit hours upon successful completion, as well as fulfill the graduation requirement. Students may register for the course during registration periods prior to the start of each semester. Class sections fill very quickly, so be sure to register early!

Option 2: Successfully pass the Computer Competency Exam

Alternatively, the Computer Competency Exam is for those students who have already mastered the most common Microsoft and Windows applications used in academic and business environments, as well as have a deep familiarity negotiating the world wide web. Students who choose this option do not receive any academic credit hours, but rather fulfill the graduation requirement when the exam is successfully passed. If you are confident you have mastery of the material listed below, you may be a candidate for the Computer Competency Exam in lieu of the CIS 1300C course.
