If you can pass the "Test-Out Exam" with a grade of 80% or better, we will award you course credit (listed on your transcript as "Credit by Exam") and permit you to take more advanced Computer Science courses as if you had successfully completed the course itself. Read on for the department test out policy, subject areas for each of the tests.
