Required Tests

The chart below lists the majors offered with corresponding degrees and required standardized tests. Since more than one degree may be available for the same major, you must indicate your degree selection and the specialization or teaching field, if applicable. If more than one standardized test is listed for your major, the department will generally accept the results of either test. Not all programs require a standardized test. Information about testing services is available at Testing Services, Peck Hall, Room 1404, or on the SIUE website at siue.edu/IS/TEST.
