Computer Literacy Skills Placement (Archived)
This Web page includes updates that were added after it was originally published on May 28, 2010.
New students who are entering the college for the first time should follow this version when selecting courses.

Show me the May 28, 2010, web published version.
Show me what changed in 2010-2011.


Effective Fall 2010 semester students are required to take a Computer Skills Placement test to assess their level of computer literacy. Students are required to demonstrate or acquire these computer skills at the beginning of their college work because it is important to possess these skills for success in all college level courses. Students will be exempt from this testing requirement if they:
  1. Have completed ITSC 1401, BCIS 1405, COSC 1300, COSC 1401, POFI 1301, or equivalent within the last ten years with a grade of C or better.
  2. Are 65 year of age and older.
  3. Have completed 12 hours of college level work by Spring 2011.
Students will be waived (temporary action, future action required by an advisor) from taking the Computer Skills Placement test if they:
  1. Are seeking career and technical education through an Associate of Applied Sciences degree, a certificate, or credit contract training program.
  2. Are transient university students.
  3. Are Dual Credit students who have not graduated from high school.

Students will be allowed to retest one time in the first semester of enrollment. The retest fee is $10. If students have not passed the test or successfully completed ITSC 1401, BCIS 1405, COSC 1300, COSC 1401, POFI 1301 by registration of their second semester of enrollment, they will be required to enroll in courses to address their computer literacy deficiencies.
