Center for Academic Advising and Retention Services
Testing Services in Suite 127 of Keller Hall offers a variety of tests to both the university community and the community at large. Follow the links listed below for more information about each test.
All* students at UNA are required to successfully complete the Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP) after completing 44 semester hours of coursework and prior to beginning the 70th hour of coursework. New students transferring in more than 70 hours of coursework must register for the CAAP exam during their first semester at UNA. The CAAP exam is only offered during the Spring and Fall semesters. The purpose of the examination is to measure what students learn during the basic program of study. Scores on the CAAP exam are compared nationally to help rank students and provide data used in our accreditation process.
* Students in an online degree program and students who already have earned a bachelor's degree are exempt from this requirement. If this applies to you, please contact Kenda Rusevlyan at 256-765-4773 for further instructions.
