We recommend arriving in the Ashland area the night before as this exam can be offered only once each summer and must be completed by 1:00 p.m. to allow the 5-member graduate faculty evaluation team sufficient time to grade the exams.

If you have arranged lodging through ABC, you will have a motel room for every night from June 18 through and including July 5.
