So I'm signing up for a test in August but hesitated when I got to the part of the CISSP exam registration regarding the work experience requirement to be allowed to sit for the exam.

It says:

Have a minimum five years of direct full-time information security professional work experience in two or more of the ten domains of the (ISC)² CISSP CBK. If you hold a certificate on the (ISC)²-approved list, you may waive one year of the five-year requirement OR you may waive one year for a four-year college degree or a Master’s Degree in Information Security from a National Center of Excellence. No more than one year total of experience may be waived. Please refer to How to Certify for more details.

And what I'm worried about is the fact that even though I have 9 years experience total, I only worked full time during summers and januarys during college, and 2.5 years full time so far since being out of college. I multiplied the months and I get 50 months of full time.

Does my experience even count as full time if it wasnt year round during college even though when i did work it was full time?

I also have always worked part time during school. im assuming my degree makes me only need 4 years experience
