Major Field Exams (Waived during SP21 and SS21)

Graduating seniors in any departmental major with our department are required to take a major field test in their field of study (computer science).  

The exams are available through the UMSL Campus Testing Center. The department contacts all graduating students prior to graduation with information concerning how to arrange the exam and sample materials.  Graduating seniors for fall semester will take the exam during the month of November, spring graduates during the month of April, and summer graduates during the month of July.  Students must be on the graduation list in order to take the major field exam.
