Fox Computer Literacy Test

How long does the entire FOXCLT session take?

The Fox Computer Literacy Testing session is comprised of three parts: an introduction and set-up, the practice test, and the actual test. The first part takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete; the practice test has a maximum time of 10 minutes; the actual test has a maximum test of 50 minutes.

When should I take the FoxCLT?

It is encouraged for students to take the FoxCLT their incoming year at the Fox School of Business. Ultimately, it needs to be completed and passed prior to enrollment in MIS 2101.

DO NOT PUT THIS TEST OFF. For example, if you delay taking it till your senior year and you do not pass, it could very well affect when you graduate.

We also strongly encourage you to take this test WELL BEFORE registration period. Tests get booked up very quickly during that time!

I passed the FoxCLT. When can I register for MIS 2101?

Approximately 1-2 business days after you’ve successfully completed the FoxCLT, you should be able to register for MIS 2101 via Self Service Banner.

Approximately 3-5 business days after you’ve successfully completed and notified the administrator about passing the re-test, you should be able to register for MIS 2101 also via Self Service Banner.

If you cannot register after 5 business days, contact the FoxCLT admin at

English is not my first language. Can I use a dictionary for this test?

Since the upgrade to Microsoft 2013 in the spring semester of 2016, there has been a helpful translator added into the Computer Literacy Test. Now, any student who does not fully understand the question in English will be able to access a handy translator within the actual test that will translate the question into whichever language they’d prefer. So, this in-test translator eliminates the need from any outside resources, such as a dictionary or Google Translate.
