How do I schedule an exam in the Testing Center?

You must submit a signed and completed Out of Class Testing form to the testing center via email a minimum of seven days prior to your exam date. Testing Center email addresses can be found at the top of your Out of Class Testing form. If a form is sent fewer than seven days in advance, the Testing Center cannot ensure that you will receive your full accommodations due to spacing and/or staffing.

Once the completed form is entered into the testing center schedule, you will receive a confirmation email. Ensure that your confirmation email is correct. If there is a mistake, please contact the testing center immediately.

I missed an exam due to an athletic event or unforeseen personal event. Can I take my exam in the Testing Center?
 Yes. Your instructor must complete a Rescheduled Exam Request form and submit the completed form a minimum of 72 hours in advance to the North Campus Testing Center. We will not accept RER forms turned in less than 72 hours in advance.
Are the testing centers open during the summer for students who are enrolled in summer courses?

Yes. The testing centers are available for student use for summer courses. However, the testing centers are not fully staffed during the summer. Students and faculty are encouraged to reach out to the testing centers to inquire about summer availability. Typically, we request that students and/or faculty communicate exam proctoring at least 72 hours prior to the requested date and time.
