The Computer Science Exit Exam must be taken prior to the end of the semester in which you intend to graduate. Each student must pass this exam by scoring above the lowest tenth percentile of the national average. A lower score will require that you either remediate your lack of knowledge under the supervision of a faculty member, or you may retake the exam at your expense ($25).
It is recommended that you take the exam in your last semester at ODU to maximize your knowledge. You may opt to take it earlier.
The exam is provided online and must be proctored. It contains a brief survey, a tutorial of the tool, and two 60 minute exam sections. Plan on 2.5 hours (150 minutes). Sample test questions are available. A tutorial/review session archive is also available for your review.
The exam will be proctored, and registration is required. To accommodate work and class schedules, two exam sessions are scheduled:
- October 7th - 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
- October 7th - 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
All exam participants are required to complete the CS Exit Survey.
