Microcomputer proficiency

All students in any College of Business Administration subplan, and all other students taking certain business courses, must demonstrate proficiency with specific microcomputer software packages. The proficiency must be demonstrated prior to taking any business course with the term “microcomputer proficiency” in the prerequisite list. Some business courses identify specific microcomputer packages in their prerequisite lists. In these cases, proficiency in the noted packages must be demonstrated prior to taking the course.

Microcomputer proficiency must be demonstrated by satisfying one of the following three alternatives:

  1. CIS 101.
  2. Microcomputer proficiency skills test in Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
  3. An approved college course.

There are no units associated with the microcomputer proficiency skills test. If the test is passed, then electives in the subplan selected may be increased by 4 units.
