Graduation Competency Testing

The Math Graduation Competency is administered to students who are applying for an AA/AS Degree and have been referred to the Assessment Center by their counselor. This competency requirement may be satisfied by completing specific courses as listed in the graduation requirements section of the ARC catalog or by passing the competency examination administered in the Assessment Center. Students should consult with their counselor to determine whether an examination is required. In order to test for Math Graduation Competency, students must submit a Mathematics Competency Approval Form signed by their counselor for every test and retest. The math competency exam is administered either during regular testing times or by appointment. Please see the Testing Calendar.
