Cancelled Test Scores
Should the testing agency cancel official test scores for tests used to make admission decisions described in this policy, the university will take the following action:
If classes have begun and the student is currently enrolled, the cancelled score/s will be removed from Banner and Recruit. Future course prerequisites will not be met using the cancelled score. Scholarship awards will be adjusted accordingly upon receipt of cancellation notice. The student will remain enrolled because he/she met admission requirements and was admitted in good faith prior to the test score cancellation; however, the need for intermediate coursework will be evaluated.
If classes have not begun, the cancelled score/s will be removed from Banner and Recruit and scholarship offers will be adjusted accordingly. The student may be asked to sit for a national test, residual ACT or Accuplacer depending on the date of test score cancellation and the highest valid score on file.
