The Competency Exam will be given several times during the year. You must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the exam start time to check in. You are required to preset a photo ID (UNLV Student ID, DMV-issued ID, Military ID, or Passport) when you sign in. Scantrons and calculators will be provided. Except for pre-approved accommodations through the Disability Resource Center, you must use the provided calculator.
View the upcoming exam dates and register online for the Competency Exam. You may only register for one exam date at a time. If you register for more than one exam date, you will be assigned to the earliest exam date. If you need to repeat an exam, you may register for another exam after you are notified of your exam results. If you register for an exam and do not attend the exam and do not cancel at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled exam, you may not be allowed to take the exam the next time it is offered.
To prepare for the Competency Exam, we strongly recommend you access and read the Exam Description and Study Guide. Please be advised, that the Competency Exam covers topics from ACC 201 (Financial Accounting) and ACC 202 (Managerial Accounting). Taking the exam prior to covering the topics in the Exam Description and Study Guide is highly discouraged.
