Senior Exit Exam

Please read the following details VERY carefully, as the process for taking the Exit Exam has changed. 

WHO MUST TAKE THE EXAM?
All graduating seniors must take the Senior Exit Exam appropriate for their track. Only students who have completed their Senior Audit (and can provide documentation) are eligible for the exam. 

WHEN AND WHERE IS THE EXAM OFFERED?
Spring 14 Senior Exit Exams begin Tuesday, April 1st and end Thursday, April 17, 2014.  All Exits Exams will be administered in the Center for Excellence in Communication (CEC), Columbine Hall 312, and administered via Blackboard.  Even if you receive notification that the exam is available, you will not be able to access it except from the CEC. 

WHEN ARE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE?
Appointments are available during the following hours.

Monday

 

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Tuesday

 

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wednesday

 

9:00 am - 7:00 pm

Thursday

 

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Friday

 

9:00 am - 1:00 pm

You should allow 45 minutes to complete the exam.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
You MUST make an appointment to take the exam.  You will need the following information:

1.  Your full name
2.  Student ID number
3. Your track
4) Email address
5) Date of Senior Audit (must be in the past for you to register)

Once you have the above information, please register for an exam time (via Mountain Lion Connect), using your UCCS login and password. The deadline to schedule an appointment is Friday, March 21st.

You should receive an email confirmation once your registration is complete.  DO NOT just show up at the Center, because your name may not yet be in the system.  DO NOT wait to make your appointment because the Center is very busy during this time and exam appointments are limited.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
You do not have to get a certain score on the exam in order to graduate. We want you to do your best and show us what you've learned. However, once the exam period is over, students that score 80% or higher on the exam will be granted a 2% point bonus added the final grade of a Communication class, of their choice (Spring 2014 semester only).

WHAT HAPPENS IF I FORGET AND DON'T TAKE THE EXAM?
The Senior Exit Exam is a graduation requirement.  If you do not take the exam, you will not receive your official graduation transcript.  You will need to complete the exam the next time it is offered.  In contrast to previous semesters, waivers will not be issued, which means you may need to come back to visit your alma mater the following semester. The exam will be offered during Fall and Spring semesters only.
