A proficiency is an exam administered by Testing Services that will allow you to "test out" of a course. Please see list of exams available here. They can be either oral or written exams.
There is a $25 examination fee, per proficiency exam. This is nonrefundable.
For more details about payment and procedure, obtain a copy of the Application For Examination at the Testing Center, in either Toledo or Findlay.
Please allow 5 business days for processing of the application and fee. The Testing Center will call to schedule your examination.
Your exam will be administered in the Testing Center, in either Toledo or Findlay. You choose the location on the application.
Grading time varies by test. All test information is immediately sent to the respective department for grading. Since other offices grade the exam, the turnaround time varies. We do not know when the results will be returned to our office. Students will receive notification of test results in their Owens Community College email account.
You must present a valid, photo ID. Some proficiency exams allow you to use a calculator. All other items must be placed into a locker, which we will provide. Please familiarize yourself with the rules of the Testing Center prior to your arrival.
