Freshmen students who entered the Fox School after 2008 must take the FOXCLT. Transfer students who are in the core-to-core curriculum or transferred with 45+ credit hours are strongly advised. If you are uncertain check with your Undergraduate Advisor.
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.
The FoxCLT is held in Alter Hall 602 or 603.
The cost for the FoxCLT access code is $40.65 from the Temple University Bookstore (13th & Montgomery).
The topics you will be tested are Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point, & general computer concepts. For a more in depth listing refer to Skills and Concepts.
NO! To satisfy the prerequisite for MIS 2101, you need only participate in a Workshop OR take the CLT and pass.
Unfortunately, you will simply have to book yourself a seat in the next test that has room available.
Afterwards, you should encourage all of your fellow Fox peers who have not yet taken the test to book themselves a seat as early in the semester as possible.
NOTHING. There is no need to do anything with Access Code prior to attending the test session. Simply remember to bring it with you!
NO! This rule has recently changed. As long as you plan to retake the Computer Literacy Test within the next two years, you do NOT need to repurchase another Access Code. Simply bring your already-used Access Code with you.
The Computer Literacy Test can be taken TWICE. If both attempts are failed, then you will be asked to either participate in a CLT Workshop or enroll in CIS 1055/CIS 0835.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
