This course has been approved as meeting the requirements for Computer Competency.

For courses in which Computer Competency is infused throughout the course:
In order to fulfill FSU's Computer Competency Requirement, the student must earn a "C-" or better in the course.

For courses in which Computer Competency is demonstrated during a particular component of the course:
In order to receive a “C–” or better in the course, the student must earn at least a “C–” on the Computer Competency component of the course. If the student does not earn a “C–” or better on the Computer Competency component of the course, the student will not earn an overall grade of “C–” or better in the course, no matter how well the student performs in the remaining portion of the course.

The course syllabus or an attached appendix must include the following:

  • A full description of the capstone activity or assignment which requires students to demonstrate competent use of computer skills appropriate to the discipline.
  • A grading rubric or criteria for the capstone assignment.
