Using Testing Services in the Academic Support Center

The Academic Support Center (ASC) provides test proctoring services for students with disabilities and students who have missed an exam. Please Note: The ability to “make up” a missed exam is a privilege that must be approved by the instructor. The Academic Support Center serves as a proctor location for the missed exam in instances when the instructor does not have the ability to proctor the test within the academic department.

General Information

There are two processes for scheduling a test at the ASC. One is for students registered with the Disability Resource Office. The other is for students who missed an exam. Students registered with the Disability Resource Office must complete the student form. Students needing to make up an exam must request their faculty to initiate a Faculty Testing Reservation Approval Form. All fields are mandatory. Requests must be received a minimum of 3 business days prior to the exam date. This gives the ASC time to contact your faculty to obtain your exam, testing instructions and deadlines. We are unable to honor same-day test requests.

If a computer is required for the exam, students will use the Academic Support Center computers; personal laptops are prohibited.

No personal belongings may be taken into a testing room. This includes coats, hats, purses, keys, cell phones, iWatches, backpacks, etc.

Student cell phones must be turned off or put on vibrate and left with the ASC staff.

Students should use the restroom prior to starting the exam; excused breaks are not allowed unless they are an approved accommodation through the disability office.

If a student is suspected of cheating, the testing will cease, the instructor will be notified and testing privileges in the ASC may be revoked. See AU Academic Integrity Code.

Finals week make-up exams are limited to students who miss their exam and receive their instructor’s permission to make up the exam. Students wishing to take their exam early must make alternative arrangements with their instructor.
