Departmental Exams

General Information:

Students are permitted to take departmental-approved exams in courses that are offered on campus. Tests are equivalent to a comprehensive final examination, and may include a combination of the following tests: objective, essay, and/or performance.

Departmental exams normally test the course content of the UCO class. The content comes from adopted texts and references used in similar courses taught at the college level. In all cases, students are advised to consult with an Enrollment advisor, and complete an application which is approved by the appropriate Department Chairperson. The exam must be taken within thirty days of obtaining the chairperson's signature. 


The fee for the exam is nonrefundable and is payable online only. To register, see the price of the exam, or see a list of the exams offered, click the "Register" button.

Most departmental exams are administered at the Testing Center by appointment. After the fee has been paid, please call 405.974.2388 at least 24 business hours in advance to schedule an appointment. If an exam is not listed, please contact the department the exam falls under to see if they administer it.

On the Day of the Exam:

The student must bring a photo ID.

No cell phones will be allowed. Purses and other items will be stored in a locker during testing.
