MIS 220 Equivalency Exam

MIS 220 Equivalency Exam

The test out is intended for students who plan on majoring or minoring in Business. If you do not plan on majoring or minoring in Business, you do not need to take the test. 

The test is administered during registration periods and can be taken once per quarter to establish equivalency.


The MIS 220 test-out exam focuses on MS Excel skills.  In order to test out of the course, a student needs to demonstrate a strong skill set with MS Excel.  Due to the comprehensive course content, it is not easy to test out of the MIS 220 course.  While the test results vary from quarter to quarter, on average, approximately 40% of the students who have attempted the test-out exam during recent quarters have passed the exam.

To pass the test a student needs an overall score of 80%. The test is to be completed in 1 hour 45 minutes.
