Testing Center

The Office of Student Engagement and Success provides students with accommodations a place in which they can take exams. In order for a student to use the Testing Center, he/she must have accommodations through Student Support Services. Once a student has been approved for accommodations, the student’s professor should complete the Testing Center Request Form no later than 48 hours before a student needs an appointment to take an exam. Students will be contacted once this form has been completed. It is the student’s responsibility to make professors aware of the need to use the Testing Center in addition to scheduling an appointment and taking the exam.

Professors can locate the Testing Center Request Form under the Faculty Tab in Scholar.

Please email the Testing Center at testingcenter@nullshorter.edu if you have any questions.
