Who can use the Testing Center?

We offer exam proctoring services in the Student Success Center (SSC) Testing Center for any student who meets at least one of the following criteria:

  • A student with documented testing accommodations from the Accessibility Resource Center Office.
  • A student who misses a test due to participation in a university-sponsored event. University- sponsored events include, but are not limited to, athletic or academic events and/or conferences.
  • Students serving as active military or reserve military personnel who miss a test due to being activated for duty.
  • Activated military personnel spouses caring for minor dependents who miss a test due to an increase in family-related responsibilities in their spouse’s absence.
  • Students wishing to use the Testing Center are responsible for reserving a testing spot at least 72 hours prior to each test. See below about students with accommodations and students traveling on official university business (including student-athletes) or experiencing scheduling conflicts related to active military duty.

Who is not allowed to use the Testing Center?

A student who misses a test but does not meet one of the criteria above (e.g., for illness, family event, personal travel) should make arrangements with the faculty to take the test outside of class. 

How do I book a test?

A student with accommodations through Accessibility Resource Center who qualifies to take a test in the Testing Center must schedule a test using the Accommodate scheduling system. Information on how to use Accommodate can be found below.
