Computer Literacy Assessment

Computer-based learning is an essential component of a Stevenson University education. All students are required to successfully complete IS 134—MS Windows and Office Applications unless exempted. Students who meet any of the following exemptions have demonstrated computer literacy and do not have to take IS 134. They are as follows:

  • Achieve a passing score on the Computer Literacy Assessment Test.
  • Achieve the grade of "C" or better in an equivalent course at another institution.
  • Students majoring in Visual Communication, Nursing, or Video, Film, and Theatre take a comparable course in their major.

All Business Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, Business Administration, Accounting, Business Communication, Criminal Justice and Paralegal majors are also required to take IS 135 - Advanced MS Office Applications. Students in these majors are strongly encouraged to take the Computer Literacy Assessment Test.
