|Policy and Forms|
All students in the Graduate School are expected to be proficient in Word Processing and basic math competencies.
English proficiency is established by examinations completed at off campus centers, internet testing, or completion of the AIIAS English Center proficiency examinations
(see English Proficiency p. 20).
Word Processing and Spreadsheet Proficiency
Word processing and spreadsheet proficiency are determined by the Graduate School using scheduled examinations. Word Processing proficiency examinations take place at the beginning of every term; spreadsheets less frequently. The examination is free of charge to Graduate School students the first time it is taken. Students must register in advance with the Dean’s secretary if they plan to take the examination. Check with the Dean’s secretary for exact exam schedule and location. Copies of the performance skills to be tested are available from the Dean’s secretary at any time. The score needed to pass both exams is 75%. Word Processing also requires a 20 words-per-minute typing speed.
Students who fail a proficiency examination may retake it at a later date, but will be required to pay an examination fee. A student who has not passed the proficiency exam at the time the class is taught on campus will be required to enroll in the class. DLC students who do not pass the Word Processing proficiency exam must follow the procedure established by the Graduate School for meeting the prerequisite.
