Major Field and ETS-PP exams are scheduled and administered by the Office of Testing Services. If you have any problems with, or questions about, scheduling your exams, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (816) 235-5820.
ALL EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS REGARDING EXIT EXAMS ARE SENT TO YOUR UMKC STUDENT EMAIL ACCOUNT ONLY.
All students are required to take the ETS-PP exam after the completion of 90 hours and prior to graduation. There are three exceptions. One, if you have earned a Bachelor's degree previously. Two, if you are a School of Education Bachelor’s degree-seeking teacher education student and have taken the entire C-BASE test and obtained a score of 235 in all five sections (English, Science, Math, Social Studies, and Writing). Three, if you are a School of Education Bachelor’s degree-seeking teacher education student and have taken the MoGEA and achieved the following scores: English (220), Writing (193), Math (183), Science (202) and Social Studies (202). If you receive the Email notification to take this test and you have fulfilled one of these exceptions, contact Testing Services and we will input the exemption on your record.
Some degree programs require Major Field exams to be scheduled and administered through Testing Services Office: Biology BA, BS; Physics BA, BS; and Psychology BA. The schedule for these exams will also appear online for registration upon your individual access of the site. If you have any problems with, or questions about, scheduling your exams, please contact email@example.com or call (816) 235-5820.
Exit exams are a degree requirement - if you fail to take your required exams before the end of the semester in which you plan to graduate, you will need to reapply for graduation. The University of Missouri Board of Curators, other state entities, and the national college accrediting agency require the University to assess the effectiveness of academic programs. All undergraduate students must take a test of general education and complete a major field test prior to being granted a baccalaureate degree. Graduation depends on completion of exit exam requirements.
Should you need to reschedule an exam, you may access this site and simply choose another date. This will automatically override the previously selected date. Click here for more information about ETS-PP and Major Field Exams.
