Certification Exams

The Rawls College of Business and the Rawls Testing Center offers students the opportunity to take Certiport's Excel Certification exam. Students who successfully complete the certification process will gain valuable skills and increase their marketability to future employers.

The Certiport Excel certification program gives test candidates practical, performance-based scenarios to gauge their real-world capabilities with project and standards-based outcome testing. Certified candidates will demonstrate the fundamentals of creating and managing worksheets and workbooks, creating cells and ranges, creating tables, applying formulas and functions and creating charts and objects.

Please note: Your instructor may have provided you with additional instructions or guidelines about the Excel Certification which you will also need to follow.

Certiport Account Requirements

Students are required to create a Certiport account and purchase an exam voucher prior to arriving on the scheduled test date. Students will need Certiport account credentials and an MOS voucher to complete a Certiport certification exam.

  1. Students must create a Certiport student account using their TTU email address.
  2. Students must add TTU R# to the Student ID field when creating a new Certiport account.
  3. Students must purchase a Microsoft Office Specialist Exam Voucher from Certiport per their course/instructor guidelines (including instructions on how to purchase the voucher at a discounted rate).
  4. After an exam voucher has been purchased, Certiport sends an email with the voucher code. This code is required to complete the Excel Certification Exam.
