DEPT exams are usually constructed and graded on campus. Most vary from 30 minutes to 3 hours in length, and may include objective questions, essay questions, and/or skills tests.
DEPT test registration
The deadline to submit your DEPT Registration form, test fee, and payment is one week prior to the test date.
The process begins in Testing Services, which is located in the Student Services Center room 315. You must complete three forms before you are allowed to test: DEPT Registration form, Test Fee Payment Request, and Admission Ticket.
- First, ask for and complete a DEPT Registration form.
- Take the registration form to the appropriate department for approval and signature of the department chairperson or designee. While there, arrange a test date and time and remember to ask for a test study guide while in the department.
- Next, return your completed DEPT registration form to Testing Services and ask a Testing staff person for a “Test Fee Payment Request” form. Testing personnel will help you complete the form.
- Submit your test fee payment and form to the Cashier’s Office on the first floor of the SSC. Be sure to obtain a receipt for your payment because you will have to present it to Testing Services.
- Once you have paid, return to Testing Services and present both your signed DEPT registration form and your “Test Fee Payment Request” form with the receipt attached.
- Then, ask for an admission ticket. Testing personnel will complete the form.
- On your appointment date, present your admission ticket along with an acceptable government-issued photo ID.
