THESE ARE SOME COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Is there a deadline to take the Hebrew Credit by Exam?

  1. Yes & No.  If you are enrolled in a Modern Hebrew course, then yes, there's a deadline. For example, if you are enrolled in 203a but you want to take the Hebrew Credit by Exam for 103a and 103b, then you have to test by the third week of classes. There is no deadline if you are not currently enrolled in a Modern Hebrew class.

Is Hebrew Credit by Exam graded and will that grade show on my transcripts?

  1. Yes.  All Hebrew Credit by Exams are graded and that grade will calculate into your GPA.  There is no longer the option to take the Hebrew Credit by Exam for pass/fail.

Can I use the Hebrew Credit by Exam to replace a grade?

  1. No. An exam and a class are not considered the same. In order to replace a grade for a class, you will need to enroll in the Grade Replacement Opportunity through the Registrar's Office. You can take the Hebrew Credit by Exam test but your original grade will still be on your transcripts along with the Hebrew Credit by Exam grade.

Are there fees to take the Hebrew Credit by Exam?

  1. Yes. The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies has a $30 processing fee that will be applied to your Bursar's account.  The University of Arizona Bursar's Office charges $21.00 a credit hour ($105 total) and The Testing Office has a $15 processing fee. Things change, so you should contact those offices for exact fee amounts.

Is there someone in Judaic Studies who can help me study?

  1. Perhaps.  While faculty members are under no obligation to assist with test preparation they might be able to steer you in the right direction and recommend study material. Occasionally there might be a tutor available, however, studying and preparing for the exam is entirely up to you.

What are the procedures to take the exams?

  1. Start with Anat Maimon, Coordinator of the Modern Hebrew Program.  No one can test without Anat Maimon's consent.  Once you have that, you will be sent to Jeanne Davenport to complete the necessary forms.
  2. The exams are scheduled through administered in The Testing Office.  You can schedule the test at any time, but you won't be allowed to test without the necessary forms.
  3. Once you've tested, the exam will be delivered to Judaic Studies for grading. Once graded, it will appear on your transcripts.
