CIS Competency Testing Information

Competency testing for CIS courses is administered on the main campus in the CIS Lab Testing Center.  CIS competency testing is not available at off-campus sites. An appointment to take a test is not necessary, but you will need to allow adequate time for testing during the lab's hours of operation. Students are required to present picture identification (i.e., MCC student ID, a current driver's license or state ID card) before a test will be administered.
