All students in any College of Business Administration subplan, and all other students taking certain business courses, must demonstrate proficiency with specific personal computer software packages.

1 Personal Computer Proficiency must be demonstrated by satisfying one of the following three alternatives: 1) CIS 1010 , 2) personal computer proficiency test in Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint, or 3) an approved college course. There are no units associated with the personal computer proficiency test. If the test is passed, then electives in subplan selected may be increased by 3 units.
