We assume all tests administered are closed book, no notes and no additional materials. 

Unless the instructor states otherwise, there will be no exceptions to these rules. 

Please review AACC’s full Academic Integrity Statement. As a student you agree to follow all standards set forth by this college. Any incident found in violation of these rules will be addressed immediately. 

  • Before entering any of our testing rooms, turn off any electronic device including all phones (off, not vibrate), audio devices and pagers. If any of these devices are found to be “on”, you forfeit your test.
  • No use of cameras, video or imaging of any kind can occur inside one of our testing centers.
  • Texting, talking or any other form of communication with anyone other than testing staff during an exam is considered a violation of the Academic Integrity Policy.

Calculators

Smartphones and tablets cannot be used as calculators. If your professor allows the use of a calculator during your exam, you may bring your own or use one of the testing center's calculators.

The testing centers allow students to use TI-84+ and below if calculators are allowed during your exam. If you require a more advanced calculator you will need to obtain permission in writing from your instructor.

Identification

Please have a picture ID ready when you come to take your exam. This is required when testing both online and in any testing center. Testing staff will not administer an exam without ID. Although not required, it is helpful if you have your student ID card. Some certification exams require multiple ID cards. If you are taking a certification exam, be sure to verify with the specific vendor what is required.

Child Care

Children are not allowed to be left unattended outside of a testing center. Testing staff will not be able to watch your children during your exam session. If your child is found unattended, you will be asked to stop testing and the exam will be submitted to your professor. If you require child care while you attend classes and/or take exams at AACC, contact the Child Development Center for services and rates.

Hours 

Due to the COVID-19 response, ALL exams are by APPOINTMENT ONLY

Each testing location has their own hours of operations. All testing centers open and close exactly at their stated times. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you are still taking an exam at closing time, your testing session will be stopped and the exam will be submitted to your professor. If you are taking a placement exam, your exam will be stopped and you can return within two weeks to finish. Students with an extended time accommodation must finish their exam by the posted closing time.

Textbook and E-book use in the Testing Center

  • The student’s instructor must give permission that a textbook/e-book is allowed during an exam session.
