CIS100 Test Out

The CIS100 Test Out option has been created to afford UofL students the opportunity to challenge the requirements and expected outcomes for CIS100 in order to receive full credit without having to complete the course (or pay in full for it). The test is closed book, closed notes, and no Internet resources are allowed; however, you may use Microsoft Excel 2007. One-half of the test is Microsoft Excel, while the other half includes a variety of information technology topics (hardware, software, databases, communications, security, etc.). A minimum score of 75% is required in order to receive credit for CIS100.

You may contact Professor Stephen Kendra to receive study materials to help you prepare for this test.

The fee for the CIS100 Test Out is $60 and payable at the time of testing.  ALL Test Fees are NON REFUNDABLE!  You may NOT take the CIS100 Test Out Option if you are currently enrolled in or have previously taken the CIS100 course at UofL. Students who earn between 70% and 75% are eligible to retake the exam once for an additional fee of $50.  The re-test and registration information will be sent with your score report.
