Graduation Exit Exams


Completion of one or more of the Graduation Exit Exams are required in order to receive your diploma!

*** Graduation Exit Exams MUST be taken the semester you are completing your course work, not before. ***

Proficiency Profile (Graduation Exit Exam)

Beginning FEBRUARY 1, 2024, students who have filed their SPRING 2024 Intent to Graduate are eligible to take the Graduation Exit Exam. If you will be completing your coursework for graduation any semester OTHER than SPRING 2024, please do not take the test at this time. 

Each graduating student is required by the Tennessee Board of Regents to take a test of general competency. The Proficiency Profile (Exit Exam) is a test of college-level skills in reading, writing, critical thinking, and mathematics designed to measure the academic skills developed through general education courses, it does not measure subject knowledge specifically taught in those courses. This test is not a pass/fail assessment and does not affect one's graduating status; rather it is a measure of how well Roane State educates its students. Students are encouraged to do their best since Roane State's evaluation and future funding are based on student performance. Students are advised that failure to meet this graduation requirement will result in having the student's diploma held until this condition is met.

ON CAMPUS Proficiency Profile Exit Exam: no appointment necessary.

Participating campuses are Roane County (Harriman) and Oak Ridge. Please allow one hour to complete your Exit Exam. Testing Centers close promptly at the listed closing time. You must have your R# and photo ID available at the time of testing.
