New Procedure for Exception to Accuplacer Testing:
Student may be granted an exception from their academic advisor, to register for one semester before Accuplacer test scores are reflected on their record. This exception should NOT be granted if the student requests to bypass one or more parts of Accuplacer. For example, no exception should be made if they want to complete two parts of Accuplacer, but bypass the third.
Testing must be completed by the following dates:
Fall – October 15th, Spring – February 15th, Summer – 1st Block, June 15th, 2nd Block July 15th
How to Grant Exception:
If student is out of state AND is unable to complete the Accuplacer Test, clear the AC hold and place an ET hold (ET does not prevent registration). Inform student that testing must be completed before the deadline date. In-state student should not receive this exception.
If ET is not cleared by deadline date, it will change to NT (through a job submission) and student will not be eligible for further registration. When test scores are input on student’s record, the NT hold will be cleared (through a nightly chron job).
Enter reason for exception on SPACMNT or Hold Comment in Banner Self Serve.
Gives academic advisors the ability to use their judgment to best help a student. This exception should only be used on a very limited basis – it is the exception NOT the rule.
Prevents students from being sent between departments…..”the run around”.
Allows student to register online and accept the tuition payment agreement.
Pre-requisite checking will not allow students into classes where pre-requisite is not met.
This procedure does not replace the TC/TR procedure currently being used in regards to unofficial transcripts seen by an advisor……..this is in addition to TC/TR and used specifically in regard to Accuplacer testing.
A report will be run once the NT hold is placed and then student records will be monitored for compliance….NO further exceptions made. Report will show if student is registered and who allowed the exception. Students who have been waived for a second semester, will have their classes administratively withdrawn.
This exception is granted only for Accuplacer, not ACT testing.
