Hebrew Proficiency Exam

The Hebrew Proficiency Exam allows test takers to fulfill the foreign language competency requirement by passing a foreign language exam.

Note: This exam is only administered to students who are enrolled, have been admitted, or are applying to the University of Central Florida (UCF).

Test takers are allowed 1 hour to complete the 50 multiple-choice questions.

There are no test preparation materials available. The most successful way to prepare for any given test is to review your reading ability. It is also helpful if you have a friend to practice both listening and speaking of the language.

The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for test takers with documented disabilities. Test takers with disabilities seeking alternative testing arrangements (e.g. extended time, etc.) must request approval from SAS (407-823-2371 or sas@ucf.edu). Note: test takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation requests once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.

Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test-taker’s testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will create a registration account for the student and email them instructions to register. Test takers should NOT REGISTER for a testing appointment until they receive these instructions from UTC.

$50.00 proctoring cost paid directly to the University Testing Center via RegisterBlast (this includes a non-refundable convenience fee of $3.50).

To inquire about scheduling an appointment for the Hebrew Proficiency Exam, potential test takers must start by emailing utc@ucf.edu with their full name and UCF ID number (be sure to indicate “Hebrew Proficiency” in the subject line).

After a staff member has reviewed your email, you will be instructed to register for the exam following the directions below:
