Process for using Testing Services


The STUDENT is responsible for making an appointment with the Academic Resource Center to take an exam AT LEAST TWO BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE EXAM. The ARC closes at 4:30; all tests are stopped at 4:15, regardless of the remaining test time. Please schedule your start time accordingly. Click here to make an online exam scheduling request.


The INSTRUCTOR is responsible for ensuring that the exam is delivered to the testing center prior to the exam.


Upon completion of the exam, a Peer will place the completed exam materials in a sealed envelope and contact the instructor. The Instructor will retrieve the completed exam from the Academic Resource Center.

Testing space is reserved for students who have qualified for accommodations (determined by ARC staff), or where English is not the primary language of the student (determined by faculty). All efforts will be made to accommodate every student’s testing needs. There is no guarantee that testing space will be available at the exact time it is requested. Therefore, advance notification is essential if ARC is to be utilized for test administration.
