All HESAA students are required to complete the comprehensive exam. Students are eligible to complete the comprehensive exam after completing all core or required courses (including Internship I & II) or being concurrently enrolled in the last of your required courses (including Internship I & II). Students must register in the HEA office to complete the comprehensive exam during the semester in which they intend to complete the exam. The exam is only offered in the spring and fall semesters. Given this, students should work with a faculty adviser to ensure they have met all requirements by their intended comprehensive exam date.
A comprehensive exam orientation will be conducted by the HEA faculty to review expectations, the process, and provide strategies for preparation.
