A CS 401 or CS 402 Proficiency/Waiver Examination can only be taken by students who have mastered the CS 401 or CS 402 course material through significant industrial experience. (See Placement and Proficiency Exams for details.) To take a Proficiency Examination, you must get written approval from a Graduate Advisor and the Department Chairman. The department secretary will contact you to set the date, time, and location of the exam if your request is approved. You cannot take any waiver exams after the start of your third semester in the CS department at IIT. An exam can be taken only once. The exams are closed book and closed notes.
