Are there any prerequisites for enrolling in Intermediate Governmental Accounting course?

The final is a timed exam. You will have up to 75 minutes to complete the online assessment for Intermediate. You must complete the assessment in one session. Therefore, you must allow for adequate uninterrupted time. The online final assessment consists of 50 objective, randomly generated questions. Each question in the final assessment will be presented to you one at a time. The questions may be answered in the order given or questions may be skipped and revisited later during your exam time. You must earn 70% or greater on the assessment to successfully complete this course. If you do not earn a 70% or greater on the final assessment in your first attempt, one retest is available online. The retest is randomly selected and will not necessarily duplicate the same questions as the original assessment (first attempt). Once the assessment has been submitted for grading, you will learn your results immediately. If you do not successfully pass the second attempt, you must re-register for the online course.
