  • Students who have registered for or completed the course for which they are trying to challenge (either COSC/ITSC 1401 or ITSW 1301) are not eligible to take the challenge exam.
  • The challenge exam for each course may be taken only once within Lone Star College System.
  • Students should meet with a Computer Information Technology faculty member to determine if they meet other eligibility requirements.
  • If the faculty member determines a student is eligible to take a challenge exam, the student will be given a "Prior Learning Assessment Form".
  • The student will take the "Prior Learning Assessment Form" to the Business Office Counter to pay the non-refundable $25 fee.
  • The student will then take the payment receipt and the "Prior Learning Assessment Form" to the Assessment Center (CASA Room 104) to take the test.
  • All students must have a photo ID to take exams in the Assessment Center.
  • A faculty member will contact the student to let them know if they passed.
