Structure of Testing
To check if you are qualified for the accelerated track, you can take the initial test that we offer online. This initial test does not guarantee that you will be placed in the accelerated track. Once you arrive on campus, you will need to pass an in-person verification test in a proctored environment to become accepted to the accelerated track.
