Credit by Exam

The Computer Science Department allows student to "test-out" of CSCI 127, CSCI 135 and/or CSCI 150. 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.

Next "Test-Out" dates: January 12-14 2021, from 10:00am to 1:00pm. IT WILL BE ONLINE! For late registrants or those who did not attend Friday's info sessions, you MUST attend the session on Monday (1/11) at 11:30am. Details will be provided to registered students.

The Computer Science department offers three test-out periods a year: mid-January, mid-June, and mid-August. There will be three days of testings offered consecutively (Tues-Thurs), from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm each day. Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Computer Science Department will offer three days of testout exams on January 12-14, 2021, with one remote session each day (10am-1pm).
