Welcome to Testing Services
Hours of Operation:
Our office is open Monday-Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. However, appointments are only available between 8:30 AM and 3:00 PM. We are closed on weekends and any day the university campus is closed. As a rule, a minimum of 24 hours is required for scheduling of tests. However, during peak times (e.g. Midterms, Finals, Enrollment) availability may be limited and require additional notice. While every effort is made to accommodate testers, scheduling is always subject to staffing and capacity constraints.
