IMPORTANT GRADUATION INFORMATION
With the filing of your application for graduation, you have taken another step towards the completion of the process. Deans Jean Merrill-Doss, Diana Stuart and Roger McMillian join me in requesting that you attend a Graduation Seminar (see the schedule below).
At these sessions we will discuss the graduation process, commencement, transcripts request, exit interviews for Financial Aid recipients and Career and Technical Graduates, and the exit exam. If you are unable to attend one of the seminars, you may view the seminar online at www.MineralArea.edu . It will be available after the live seminars have taken place.
All degree seeking graduates are required to take the Exit Exam. Only the Dean of your Division (Arts & Science or Career and Technical) can waive this requirement. If you previously have taken the PPE Exit Exam and scored at or above the National Average (438 or higher on the multiple choice test or a 3 or higher on the essay test) on one or both parts of the exit exam, or scored a 4 on all parts of the Workkeys Exit Exam, you may be excused from re-testing. To do so you must submit an Exit Exam Waiver Form (available on My MAC Testing page or in the Assessment Office); if you fail to complete and submit this form you will be required to retake the current exit exam. The schedule for testing is listed below. All tests will be given in room AS115. More information regarding this test will be given at the Graduation Seminars; sample test items are available on the My MAC Testing page or by clicking the links below.
You should sign up for your choice of seminar dates in Student Services or by contacting Tippi Seals at 573-518-2202. After you have attended the Graduation Seminar or viewed the seminar online (available after the final in-person seminar; go to www.mineralarea.edu , select "Graduation Seminar Video" on the right hand side of the homepage - AVAILABLE AFTER THE FINAL IN-PERSON SEMINAR), you may register for the exit exam. You may do this at the seminar, in the Student Services Office or by clicking on schedule your exit exam . (AVAILABLE AFTER THE FINAL IN-PERSON SEMINAR)
Career and Technical degree candidates are required to complete the Graduation Interview Survey in the Career Services Office AS 117 or electronically under quick links on the MyMAC home page.
