Testing Policies and Procedures

For Faculty:

  1. Requests for proctors for students with disabilities, makeup, or ITV exams must be made at least seven (7) business days in advance of the test date. Proctors are not guaranteed for requests made six or fewer days before the date of the test, although every effort will be made to find a proctor.
  2. Faculty must use either the Testing Referral Form or online form in order to request a proctor or testing appointment. Other types of requests will not be treated as official requests.
  3. Flexibility on time and/or day of the test may be required during peak times (midterms and finals).
  4. The Testing Center does not proctor regularly scheduled exams (including midterms or finals) unless they are ITV exams.

For Students:

  1. Appointments are always mandatory. Appointments must be made at least seven (7) business days before the test date. Space is not guaranteed after this deadline.
  2. It is the student’s responsibility to request taking a test in the Testing Center with their professor.
  3. We do not offer walk-in testing appointments.
  4. Students with a documented disability must have testing accommodations approved through the Office of Disability Services. Once approved, students with disabilities must meet with the Testing Coordinator as soon as possible to schedule exams (Academic Testing for Students Form) and arrange appropriate accommodations.

No Cell Phones Allowed

Cell phones and other electronic communication or photographic devices are prohibited in testing rooms. Possession or use of cell phones or other devices may result in your dismissal from the testing room and the voiding of your test score. If you're taking a standardized test (e.g., TExES/ExCET, MAT, or BTLPT), please read your admisssion ticket and other registration materials carefully.
