III. Completing the Test Scoring Request Form

NOTE: In order to determine if a student is enrolled in a class, the course name and number must be entered as it appears in the course catalog. For this reason, on the test scoring request form the course name and number must be written correctly in the area of department, course number and course modifier (if applicable). For example, if the course is Zoology 111, print ZOO 111 on the request form. If the course has a modifier, the modifier is also required.

Please do not list section letters. For instance, ZOO 111.H, section A, would be listed only as ZOO 111.H.
