CPSC 110 Challenge Exam

What is it?

If you believe you already know the material covered in CPSC 110, you can apply to challenge the course. You will be required to write a challenge exam and, assuming you obtain a sufficiently high grade, you will be given the option of accepting credit for CPSC 110. This credit will count towards your graduation requirements exactly as if you had taken the course in the usual way.

CS Mini Streams

They are human and social centred computing, scientific computing and software development.
