The requirement for proof of high school completion may be waived if the applicant can provide a copy of an official transcript showing completion of a postsecondary associate’s degree or higher. An official transcript from a non-U.S. college or university must be accompanied by a written evaluation by an agency acceptable to ETI advising that the credential earned is equivalent to an associate degree or higher of an accredited U.S. college.

  1. Possess a basic understanding of and competency in computer functions and operations and a fundamental knowledge of word processing as demonstrated by passage of a school-developed computer assessment exam with a score of 75% or higher.

Applicants who feel that they do not have the requisite knowledge and skills base to pass the assessment exam may register for the non-credit, 20-clock hour short course Computer Skills for End Users, designed to prepare students for enrollment in the Business and Technology as well as the Business Office Information Systems programs.
