The Testing Center is open for Accuplacer, CLEP, and TABE on an appointment only basis.


  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.

Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday Closed


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).
