The Usage and Grammar Test is a graduation requirement for all UNC Hussman majors and second majors. Students are required to score 70 percent or better on the test before graduation.
The test evaluates word usage, grammar and punctuation competencies based on AP style. It is a timed 60-minute test given electronically through Sakai that consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. Allow about one hour in your schedule for this test.
All MEJO 153 students will take the test once in class. Hussman minors are not required to score 70 percent or better.
The test is offered multiple times throughout each fall and spring semester and once each summer session. There is no limit to how many times the test is taken. Seats are limited. Availability can be competitive near the end of the semester. Make every effort to fulfill this obligation before your final semester.
