Taking Exams

Scheduling and taking course exams is simple.


Your testing window will now begin on the day that you enroll, and you will have the rest of the current month plus the next four months to take your exam.

For example, if you enroll in May, you will have May, June, July, August, and September to take your exam.

Intensive Review Programs
Your exam will be administered on the last day of class. If you do not take your exam in class, or if you do not pass your in-class attempt at the exam, you will be automatically enrolled in a retake, free of charge, within seven days. Any subsequent retakes or reschedules will need to be purchased at current rates.

Webinars
Your testing window will start on the last day of your class. You will have four weeks from that date to take your exam. Classes being held before July 1 will not be affected by this change.

For example, if you enroll in May for a webinar being held from July 15 through September 2, you will have until September 30 to take your exam.

Exams are taken at your local Pearson VUE Testing Center. Exams typically consist of 100 multiple choice questions. All you’ll need is scrap paper and a calculator.

Schedule your exam early so that you can plan your studies accordingly. Make sure that you are familiar with the testing center rules before you arrive.

You'll learn your exam results at the testing center. If you pass your exam, and if you’ve purchased package of courses, you’ll be automatically enrolled in the next course. If you are not successful in passing, you can purchase a Retake for the opportunity to take the exam again. If you do not take your test before your window runs out, you can purchase a Reschedule to open a new four- month testing window.

For more information, please contact a student counselor at 888-263-7265.

Final exams For all FA courses starting on or after January 1, 2014, exams must be taken through The College's proctored online examination process (NY students will take a proctored paper-and-pencil exam). Students must satisfy the attendance requirements and have a moderator grade of at least 70 to be eligible to take the final exam. Guidelines for taking the exam and instructions for registering an exam proctor can be found online in Blackboard. Student and proctor exam eligibility emails will be sent as soon as the student has met the exam eligibility requirements. (Students have 4 weeks from the last class to take their exam.)

For more information, please contact a student counselor at 888-263-7265.

If you need to retake an exam that you did not pass or you do not take your exam before your testing window closes, you will need to open a new testing window. Your new window will begin on the day of your purchase and end after the current month plus the next four months. Opening a new window requires the purchase of a Retake/Reschedule.
