Earn Course Credit via Exam

Computer Science

The Department of Computer and Information Sciences offers a "Credit by Exam" option to allow students the opportunity to earn credit for one of the following three entry-level computing courses at UST:

CISC 130: Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving in the Sciences 
CISC 131: Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving 
CISC 200: Introductory Computer Technology and Business Applications

There will be a unique exam for each course that will evaluate students relative to the specific concepts and skills that are the focus of that particular course. Students will need to obtain a score of at least 80% to receive credit for the course.

Each exam costs $150, payable to the Business Office. Students are only allowed a single attempt for each course - retakes will not be permitted.
