Welcome to Testing Services

We are a multiple use facility that offers testing services for college course placement, nursing school admission, credit and non-credit English as Second Language classes, faculty make-up exams, workforce certification, and computer-based testing for hybrid and online classes. Our goal is to provide a high-quality testing experience to our community while ensuring test integrity and providing accurate and complete testing information.

What to Expect from Testing

Prior to testing, employees are available via phone and email to answer questions about hours of operations, testing hours for each type of exam, required items for testing, the check-in process, and the testing experience. 

On the day of testing, students will need to show a current valid photo ID, place all personal belongings in a locker, and bring approved test materials. It is important to note, food and drinks are not allowed in the testing rooms.

Testing Services employees will review exam instructions with all students before testing. Students completing placement exams or nursing admission exams will review a score report upon completion. 

All testing rooms are monitored by a camera system.
