Instructor Resources

Welcome to Testing Services!

We are excited to support the proctoring needs of you and your students and hope that you find the following information valuable. This service is offered to any student who misses a regular scheduled exam (make-up) and/or has accommodations authorized by Disability Resources and Services. Our Testing Center facility supports both computer-based and paper-and-pencil tests, administered in a quiet and secure setting. 

Due to limited resources, we are unable to support full class testing for either on-campus or virtual proctoring
