English 250 Test-Out Information

University policy states that students may attempt a test-out for a course only once.

The 250 Test-Out Exam is offered only twice a year on the first Saturday of the fall and spring semesters.

The test itself lasts three hours, and students will take the exam in a Ross Hall computer lab.  The Test-Out Committee evaluates the exam using the following criteria:  context, substance, organization, style, and delivery.  All segments of the test-out must receive a satisfactory rating for a student to earn “T” (test-out) credit.  Students will be notified in approximately six weeks after the test date by email whether or not they have earned this “T” credit.
