I asked another friend what was one aspect of SRU she wished she had known before coming to SRU and she practically shouted at me: that computer test! Oh yes, I guess that is something ya’ll should be aware of…
The computer competency test is taken during the freshman orientation weekend. The test takes about 30 minutes and covers questions about everything from computer systems to word/excel programs. I was fortunate enough to have taken good computer classes in high school that I passed the computer test. If you don’t pass, which many people do not, you are required to take a 1 credit computer class for 1 month during any of your 4 years at SRU. The computer class is not a big deal but if you are able to test out of the class, that is best, of course!
The reason SRU requires this test is because computer competency is sooo important for success in the workplace no matter what your profession. There is defs a difference between social technology and professional technology and that is what this class will teach you!
