ETCE Retake Policy

Beginning January 2015, students will have the opportunity to retake the ETCE a second time. During your second attempt, you will have two chances to pass each of the four sections of the exam within a two week period.


  1. You MUST purchase a new exam code from the UCA Bookstore.
  2. You MUST wait two months from your initial attempt before you will be able to try again.
  3. If you initially took the Office 2013 version of the exam offered Fall 2014, your passing scores will carry over.
  4. Scores from previous versions of the exam are non-transferrable due to the differences in material.
  5. Scores and attempts will be maintained in a database by the TLC technology specialists.

If you are interested in retaking the ETCE, please email the TLC at for more information.
