Proficiency Exams - Bank of America

Proficiency exams for each Pre-Program Business Requirement will be offered approximately two weeks prior to the beginning of the spring, summer and fall semesters of each academic year.  A grade of “B” or better is required on the exams to test out of the pre-program requirement.  Students will be notified of the specific location one week prior to the exam.  If one of these dates does not work for you, please contact Jean Cherney for alternatives.
