Schedule a Test
- Submit a completed Test Center Proctor Form at least three (3) business days in advance for each test to be taken in the Test Center. Tests cannot be administered unless form is completed in its entirety.
- Notify staff at least three (3) business days in advance if a reader or scribe is required for a particular test.
- Schedule tests for the same day and at the same time that the test is given in class unless there is an academic-related scheduling conflict. If you have such a conflict (see examples below), you are responsible for making arrangements with your professor to take the test at a different time, and this must be reflected on the proctor form.
Examples of academic-related scheduling conflicts:
- If the test in your class will begin at a time earlier or later than the regular Test Center hours.
- If the use of extended time for a test interferes with back-to-back classes.
- If you attempted to schedule your test three (3) business days in advance, but the Test Center has no available space. In this instance Test Center staff will contact your professor to find a reasonable alternative testing option for you.
Non-academic related obligations are not considered valid scheduling conflicts.
Plan accordingly. Test Center staff will not provide excuses for missing class or work in order to complete a test.
Notify the Test Center staff and your professor as soon as possible if you are unable to take a test as scheduled due to illness or other emergency. You and your professor must agree on arrangements for rescheduling your test at a later time. Your professor must email the Test Center with the newly agreed upon test day and time.
- Arrive on time to complete test. Tests will not be administered if you arrive more than 15 minutes late. If you arrive up to 15 minutes late, that time will be deducted from the allotted test time. Professors will be notified.
- Present Winthrop ID prior to taking test.
- Bring only permitted materials into the testing cubicles. Any prohibited items are to be left in the lockers provided by the Test Center.
Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: hats, coats, purses, backpacks, cell phones, pagers, iPods, or other electronic devices. Food and/or drinks are not allowed in the Test Center cubicles unless specified as an accommodation.
- Demonstrate academic integrity in accordance with the Winthrop University Student Code of Conduct. All instances of academic dishonesty will be reported to the appropriate personnel including the Dean of Students and your instructor.
