San Francisco State University, based on the initiative of the Information Systems Department in the College of Business, has obtained the status of a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) authorized Test Center. The Information Systems Department is able to offer students on-site testing at the main campus. In addition, after a successfull pilot program during Fall 2018, the Information Systems Department will continue to sponsor the exams on campus so students can take the MS Excel and MS Access exams during the Spring semester 2019 for free - while supply lasts. ($100 retail value)

 

MOS tests at SF State are only offered for College of Business students at SFSU currently taking ISYS 363, or those who recently passed the ISYS 363 class but are still enrolled at SF State.
