Credit by Exam or Waiver
Credit by Waiver
To receive a waiver in Business Administration 150 you must have completed an equivalent
course in computer proficiency at another college or university within the last
two years. The course must include assessment in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint
and Access 2013 or higher. To apply for a Credit by Waiver deliver a detailed syllabus
and a copy of your transcript to Jan Hime in CBA 247. For more information on the
Credit by Waiver, contact Jan Hime at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject heading "BSAD150 Waiver Review".
Credit by Exam Over Microsoft Office
It is recommended that you take the course rather than testing out. In addition
to learning Microsoft Office, the course is designed to offer students benefits
such as small group projects, the use of Blackboard, and business terminology which
are skills you will need in future courses.
With Credit by Exam you have 3 hours to pass four computer-based exams; one in Microsoft
Word, PowerPoint, Access and Excel. Each exam has approximately 25 questions and
is timed at 40 minutes. To pass the course you must pass ALL exams at 80% or better.
The cost for the Credit by Examination is approximately half the cost of the course
plus the cost of the exam software. You can only take the Credit by Examination
once. If you do not pass the Credit by Examination, you will not receive a refund
and you will need to take the course to graduate. It is suggested that unless you
have intermediate to advanced software skills you not attempt the Credit by Examination.
