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, this exam is different from the Senior Exit Exam, which focuses on critical thinking and general education principles.
Seniors preparing to graduate with an Associate or Bachelor's degree from the majors listed below should contact the department representative listed below for information about testing requirements. Seniors graduating from Education, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Radiologic Technology and Special Education programs may be required to take licensure tests given in lieu of a Major Field Test. Students graduating with degrees in Liberal Arts, General Studies and Leadership and Organizational Administration are not required to take a Major Field Test.
Accommodations for distance learners and 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.
