Testing Center

The Testing Center provides ACT Compass, CLEP College Level Examination Program, and Graduate Exit Exams. Other services include Web and Regents Online Degree Program, departmental testing (individual student make-up exam), and proctored testing.

Students must allow themselves enough time to complete their exam by close. Students are required to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing. Students arriving after this cut off time will not be allowed to test. Please review the Testing Center Guidelines

No ACT Compass testing during Fall 2014 final exams.
