Students Invited Every Fall

Each October during National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Information Assurance (IA) invites students on the Ann Arbor campus to take the exam to promote safe computing practices. Students who complete the exam with a score of 90% over the course of one week are entered in a drawing for prizes.

The 2017 student exam was open October 30–November 3, with prize winners notified November 10.* Prizes are available for pickup in the U-M Computer Showcase on the ground floor of the Michigan Union during regular business hours. Choice of instock color must be determined prior to picking up prize.

* Only registered U-M Ann Arbor students are eligible for prizes. Passing the exam multiple times does not increase the chance of winning. ITS and Computer Showcase reserve the right to substitute prizes for ones of equal or greater value.
