The Test Center administers exams for all online courses. Instructors may arrange testing for students needing to take makeup exams for traditional courses, as well as those requiring extended time or modified conditions due to learning disabilities, physical handicaps, or test anxiety. The Test Center is not a proctoring site for traditional courses. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the Director of Testing.
The Test Center is located on the third floor in the Rouse Company Foundation Student Services Hall. RCF-359 can seat 55 students at desks. RCF-366 accommodates 27 students at computers that may be reserved for computerized placement testing.
Academic testing is offered on a walk-in basis during the scheduled hours of operation. Test Center hours are strictly enforced. Students are responsible for allotting time to complete tests before closing time.
A Test Center schedule is distributed to faculty members at the start of each semester. You will be notified via e-mail of major schedule changes. Students are also advised to check the schedule on the door in RCF-359. Emergency schedule changes and reminders of scheduled closings are posted there as well.
Submitting Tests to be Filed in the Test Center
Please note -For your convenience the Test Center accepts test information forms via email. Due to limited resources, the Test Center can only print out ONE copy of a paper-based test. See below for more information.
Online Exams: Online exams requiring password only for multiple students can be submitted via email. Include a roster if applicable. Those online exams with paper components for multiple students must provide multiple copies of the test to the Test Center.
Paper-based Exams: Test Center will only print ONE copy of paper-based exams sent via email request. If you have an exam for one student, please fill out the test information form and attach an electronic copy of the exam. If you have multiple students taking a paper-based exam, please drop off your exam to the Test Center or have your Division Representative deliver your tests to us. We will not accept exams through the inter-departmental mail.
Test Information Forms are available online and in the Division Offices and the Test Center. To assist Test Center personnel in administering your tests efficiently and fairly, and to help ensure that your students' tests are returned without delay, please follow these guidelines:

Academic Honesty/Testing Irregularities
The Student Conduct Code is described in detail in the Student Handbook. All regulations and policies are strictly enforced in the Test Center. If we directly observe any instance of academic dishonesty, we take the student aside and explain that testing will be terminated because of what we have observed. We explain that the test, any unauthorized materials, and documentation of our observations will be turned over to the instructor, who will decide how the matter will be handled. We advise the student to discuss the situation with the instructor responsible for the test.
The Test Center staff is aware that there are many pressures on students in a testing situation, and that any accusations of cheating can have serious academic, psychological and legal ramifications. Therefore, it is our policy never to accuse a student of cheating or speculate on the likely outcome of the "incident". We are aware that it may be necessary for the student to test in the Test Center on other occasions, and it is important that the student feel comfortable about doing so.
