Major Field Test
Most departments require graduating seniors to take an exam that covers topics specific to their major. Known as a Major Field Test, the exam is different from the Senior Exit Exam, which focuses on general education.
Seniors preparing to graduate with a Bachelor's degree from any of the majors listed below should contact the department representative listed to schedule testing. Students graduating from majors not listed below should contact their academic advisor to see if an exit exam is required. Seniors graduating from Allied Health, Education and Nursing programs are required to take licensure tests given in lieu of a Major Field Test.
All requests for exemptions must be directed to the department representative. Exemptions given for the Senior Exit Exam do not apply to the Major Field Test requirement. To see a list of all graduation requirements, please visit the Office of the Registrar's website.
