Financial Literacy Test

The Financial Literacy Test is a way for students enrolled in FIN 1521 to test out of the course. To test out of the course, students must take the exam during the first five days of the class. Students should stay enrolled in FIN 1521 until completing the challenge exam. If a student receives a passing score of 70% or better, it is their responsibility to drop the FIN 1521 course by the fifth day to receive a full refund. Students are only eligible to take the exam once.
