The Department of Economics at UCF utilizes the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Major Field Test in Economics as their exit exam. Undergraduate students at UCF who are majoring in Business Economics (B.S.B.A.) or Economics (B.S.) are required to take the test during their final semester at UCF.
The ETS Major Field Test in Economics is computerized and consists of approximately 90 multiple-choice questions. Test takers will have two (2) hours to complete the test.
That is, students who are graduating in the spring of 2021 with a B.S.B.A. degree in Business Economics or a B.S. degree in Economics do not have to take the ETS exit exam or the exit survey in order to graduate.
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities seeking accommodations for placement tests must have approval from the SAS office (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation request once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test takers testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the student via email.
Note: Test takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Thursday at 12:30 PM or earlier.
The cost for the Economics Exit Exam is $20.00. This cost includes a $3.50 RegisterBlast convenience fee for online payments. All costs paid to the University Testing Center are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Review the University Testing Center’s policies prior to test day. Items such as outwear (hoodies, sweaters, jackets, pullovers, cardigans, any form of second layer clothing), watches, and electronic devices are not permitted into the test room. UTC does offer lockers at no additional cost. The full list of UTC policies can be found here.
