Oversee

Records and Advising does not administer, enforce policies or establish criteria for admission-related testing (ACT, GRE, MAT).

Such arrangements are made at the discretion of the Office of Records and Advising, and a $25.00 service fee will be charged. Please call Testing Coordinator Rita Hickey for more information at 773-298-3012 or rhickey@sxu.edu.
