The Testing Center offers a variety of services that are available to students, faculty, and the community. The Testing Center handles placement testing, academic testing, and many other exams in a compact area. To provide proper service and utilize space, we offer tests on different days and times, which can be located under each tab on the left-hand side. 

Any student taking an exam in the Testing Center is required to provide a picture ID. Electronic devices such as cell phones and smartwatches are not allowed in the testing area. Please leave all personal belongings at home or in your car. 


With the exception of holiday weekends, operational hours are as follows:

Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


When we do not have classes scheduled on campus (between sessions, for example) the hours are 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (no Saturdays).


Smile! You're on camera. Surveillance cameras are used in the Testing Center to detect cheating or any irregularities when students are taking exams. The cameras are consistently monitored from the proctor’s desk. To ensure the security of all exams received, the Testing Center strictly maintains these documents under lock and key in a restricted area.
