CTX students who enter Concordia in the Fall 2013 term are required to take CIS 1300C to fulfill the Technology requirement of the Common Experience.
CTX students who entered before Fall 2013 must either successfully complete and pass CIS 1300C Technology in the Digital Age, or pass the Computer Competency Exam as a requirement for graduation.
Students who opt to take the course receive 3 academic credit hours upon successful completion, as well as fulfill the graduation requirement. Students may register for the course during registration periods prior to the start of each semester. Class sections fill very quickly, so be sure to register early!
Alternatively, the Computer Competency Exam is for those students who have already mastered the most common Microsoft and Windows applications used in academic and business environments, as well as have a deep familiarity negotiating the world wide web. Students who choose this option do not receive any academic credit hours, but rather fulfill the graduation requirement when the exam is successfully passed. If you are confident you have mastery of the material listed below, you may be a candidate for the Computer Competency Exam in lieu of the CIS 1300C course.
