Testing Services and
Majors Exam Policy

Updated Fall 2013

Testing Services
(Undergraduate Students)

All entering students are evaluated in the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics. Proficiency in these basic areas is a graduation requirement. Services are provided to help students attain these proficiencies (see Developmental Studies).

Testing Services
(Graduate Students)

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is administered on an individual basis for those entering graduate studies. The MAT may be scheduled through the Testing Office.

Graduate students may receive credit through CLEP testing to meet prerequisite program requirements or teacher licensure content area requirements providing that the academic adviser approves the granting of credit. Milligan College graduate students may submit scores on examinations taken through the CLEP program to the registrar for evaluation. College credit will be granted on the basis of an acceptable score earned through these testing programs as determined by the Academic Committee rather than by the testing company. Credit earned through CLEP testing will count as post-baccalaureate credit. See the undergraduate CLEP table for information about CLEP tests, acceptable scores, and credits awarded.
