Graduation application deadline in May

Many students fail to realize that the computer competency test must be completed in order to graduate on time.

Students must earn a grade of C or higher in an approved computer competency course such as BCIS 1305 or a grade of 70 on the test, either will work.  The course should be completed no later than the completion of 24 semester credit hours.
