COM 152: Principles of Communication Competence (CORE E)
The test-out procedure is in 3 parts. Part one is a 100-item multiple choice examination with questions based on the (Morreale, S.P., Spitzburg, B.H. & Barge, J.K. (2001) Human Communication: Motivation, Knowledge, & Skills, Belmont, CA: Wodsworth/Thomson Learning, Inc.) textbook which is available at the Bookstore. The Department of Communication Studies is located in the Hitchcock Building room 307. You may call the department directly at 402.280.4763 to obtain a pre-registration form prior to taking the first exam and to discuss the other two parts of the exam.
ENG 150: Rhetoric and Composition (CORE E)
There is a waiver process that can be initiated by contacting the English Department directly at 402.280.2822. The committee will require a portfolio of your written work.
Foreign Language (CORE E)
Students who believe that they have competency equivalent to having completed the 201/211 course may take a Language Competency Examination. Students who receive a passing score on this Examination will have fulfilled the language requirement and will not need to take any further language courses. This Examination is administered during Welcome Week and once each semester--usually shortly after the semester break. For more information, contact the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures or the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies (280.2508).
Competency Examinations are available in French, German, Japanese, Latin and Spanish. Waiver examinations may be arranged in some additional languages. However, the College cannot guarantee that it can assess language ability in every language. The absence of a Competency Examination is not grounds for a waiver of the requirement.
Students who have completed a language course at a level higher than 201/211 are considered to have completed the language requirement.
