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's or bachelor's degree from the majors listed below should contact the program's representative listed below for information about testing requirements. Seniors graduating from Education, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Radiologic Science and Special Education programs may be required to take licensure tests as part of the Major Field Test requirement. Degrees in Liberal Arts, General Studies and Leadership and Organizational Administration do not have a Major Field Test requirement.

There are no fees charged to students for taking the Major Field Test. Accommodations for distance learners and requests for exemptions must be directed to the program's representative. To see a list of all graduation requirements, please visit the website for Graduation.
