We look forward to your testing with us!  The following information should give you an idea of what to expect when you arrive, but please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have. 

• A photo ID is required to be admitted to all testing

• Testers who have made appointments will be given first priority. 

General Guidelines

• The Testing Center staff will ask you to sign in, print your name, the instructor's name and the course name for your exam.

• Center staff must follow the instructor’s directions. Any issues that arise can be documented by staff, but should be brought up with your instructor.

• The Testing Center is not responsible for the availability of the test at the time of your appointment. It is up to the student and/or the instructor to ensure the test is at the Center in a timely manner.

• Any DSS accommodations are considered confidential and they will not be reflected in your sign in.

• Only re-closable clear water bottles will be allowed in the testing rooms. Food and Drink are not allowed by the computers.

• Electronic devices are not allowed in the testing rooms. This includes, but is not limited to: cell phones, pagers, MP3 players, smart watches, etc.

• Lockers are provided for all personal items. Space is limited and if a locker is not available, or the item is too large, it must be left in the office.  The testing center cannot be responsible for misplaced items.

• If you will be late or need to re-schedule or cancel an appointment, please call 676-7207 or email us at testingCenter@nic.edu.

Finals Week

Only Finals are given during Finals Week. No make-up tests will be given. During the last week of classes (week before Finals Week), only make-ups from tests being given in class that week will be given at the Testing Center. If you must take a make-up from earlier in the semester during the last week of classes or during Finals Week, you must make arrangements with your instructor to take it with him/her. Before the last week of classes and Finals Week, we will give make up tests from any time during the semester.
