A Desktop Support Specialist requires a Bachelor's Degree? Wow!

At ACC, I support a computer lab used for computer-based testing, a second
computer lab that is the students' "Internet Cafe", administer the servers
that keep the lab going (2 Windows, 2 Linux), conduct 3rd-party
computer-based testing for nursing students, and provide desktop support for
our department faculty and their students. And I've been doing it for the
past seven years with only a high school diploma.

I'd be willing to bet that with only a high school diploma, the UT HR
Department would give me the bum's rush out the door.
