Fall 2022 Excel Testing

The School of Business offers its students the opportunity to complete the Microsoft Excel Certification testing for both Associate and Expert levels. The topical coverage of the Associate and Expert levels is described here.  For fall 2022, we will offer remote online testing. For students with accommodations, testing will have to be done in person as Certiport is not offering online testing for students with ADA accommodations.

Students may register for an available exam date here Excel Examinations Registration Fall 2022. These exams are limited to School of Business students only. Space for each exam date is limited to 10 students, therefore registration is on a first-come first-serve basis.  Students will receive a Google calendar invite at the time of registration for the date and time of their exam.  Students will also be required to show ID prior to taking the exam. Students will receive a Google calendar invite for an ID verification meeting prior to their exam and must accept both calendar invites. Students with accommodations will not receive a calendar invite for the ID verification, only for the exam date and time.

All registered students will be required to accept all calendar invites sent to them and confirm their attendance, via email, prior to the exam. Please see the information below regarding exam no shows. Students will be provided instructions for the day of the exam at least 24 hours prior to the exam.

All students should review the exam tutorial prior to taking the exam Students will need to use Chrome as their browser during this exam and bandwidth download speed must be at least 10 Mbps. You can test your bandwidth download speed here

Testers must set up the student’s Certiport account prior to the exam here:

  1. If the student does not have a Certiport account, please set that up using the link.
  2. If the student already has a Certiport account, please check your account to ensure that you remember your password prior to the exam.

The exam is a 50-minute, timed exam. All students can take each test for free up to two times if the same (Associate or Expert) level is involved, and up to three times if a combination of Associate and Expert levels are involved.

Failure to cancel an exam prior to 24 hours before the exam date/time, or not showing for the exam (no show) takes the exam spot from other students, as well as incurs significant costs to the School to pay for a missed exam. Thus, if a student registers for an exam date, and fails to cancel prior to 24 hours before the assigned exam date/time, or does not show, the student will not be allowed to register for another exam during the semester. They will also be removed from all calendar invites. Registering for an exam date and failing to cancel the registration prior to 24 hours before the exam date/time, or a “no show” will count as one of a student’s two attempts to take the exam.

If you require testing accommodations, you must apply though Certiport  This must be completed prior to your testing date.  You should attach to the Google registration form.

NOTE:  Two of the listed test dates are earmarked for students with accommodations only. Only students with approved testing accommodations from Certiport should register for these test dates.
