The Testing Center staff is available to proctor paper-based and computer-based tests. However, the Testing Center cannot:

1. Accommodate entire classes except for emergency situations and only with approval fromTesting Services.

2. Proctor tests for students who wish to raise a grade.

3. Retain blank tests on file.

Students who qualify for extended times should test in the Center for Students with Disabilities.
