The Testing Center assists instructors in offering proctoring services for students who need to make up an exam.
Please review your course syllabus or contact your instructor for their specific make-up policies. If your instructor allows you to take your exam in the Testing Center, we will follow your instructor's directions in regards to administering your exam.
Distance Learning Testing
If you are currently enrolled in an Online or Hybrid course, exams may need to be proctored in the testing center. Note: Not all instructors send their exams to the testing center for administration. Students must read their syllabi to determine exam procedures for their course.
*Distance Learning Students that are not living near an AACC Testing Center and need to complete an exam, may request permission from their instructor to complete their exam at an approved testing center. Please visit the NCTA - National College Testing Association's website to find an approved test center.
