* These certification exam scheduled times and dates are subject to change. Students passing the qualifying exams may reserve space only for the first upcoming exam where space is available.  Future scheduled time/dates are for information purposes only. Students enrolled in Bryan School programs (degree-seeking and certificate) or in Bryan School classes that use Excel for credit are eligible to take the certification exam through the Bryan School’s licensing arrangement.

Prior to taking the certification exam, all students are required to achieve a score of 80 or higher on a minimum of one qualifying exam taken through G’metrix. A separate access code will be provided to you once you feel you are ready. This access code will allow 3 attempts and you must receive an 80 on at least one of the attempts. All the attempts on the practice exam must be completed with the qualifying access code in testing mode, not in training mode.

To receive this qualifying code please email Josh Moore (msoffcrt@uncg.edu) using the subject Final Code. Once you have passed a qualifying exam please email Josh Moore so that you are officially on the list to take the certification exam at the next available time and date.  You will receive a reply email with detailed instructions about the process for virtual test proctoring.
