Please read before using the Test Center:

  • Please schedule your test as far in advance as possible to ensure you have a seat at the time that you need it.
  • If you need to cancel a test, please do so as soon as possible.
  • Make sure you arrive a few minutes before your scheduled testing time, so you can check-in, sharpen pencils, fill your water bottle and use the restroom.
  • In case of lateness, students will only be given the remainder of the allotted time, as indicated on Test Cover Sheet (e.g. if an exam is scheduled for 2:00 to 5:00 pm, and you arrive at 3:30, you still only have until 5:00 p.m. to complete the test).
  • Please note that unless specifically permitted by the professor/instructor, we do not allow cell phones, graphing calculators, textbooks, notebooks, notes, smartwatches or any electronic devices into the testing areas.
  • Water bottles are allowed, but no other food or drink is allowed in the Test Center
