Excel certification is being offered to students in Data Driven Decision Making at no cost to students. The costs of exam prep materials, exam administration, and the certification exam are being covered by the College of Business during this semester. Students do have obligations to minimize those costs. Once an exam is scheduled, if a student’s plans change, the exam must be canceled at least 3 business days (Monday-Friday) prior to the scheduled exam time, or be subject to a $20 late cancellation penalty. No shows will also be charged $20. This fee must be paid directly to the University Testing Center before an exam can be rescheduled.

Any cancellation or no show fees not paid to the testing center by the final exam date will be reported to the Instructor, who may administer a grade penalty in accordance with class policies. See the syllabus amendment for more details.
