Test Day Information

Bring a photo ID every time you take an exam.

You should also bring any materials needed to take the exam such as Scantron forms, pens or pencils, blue books, etc. If you are a Distance learner taking a paper exam bring an addressed and stamped envelope for us to return the exam to your professor.

Many exams will be proctored in Library 206, however, if you sign up for a group proctoring event please check the location on the email reminder you receive. Check the campus map if you are unsure where your testing location is.

Parking Information: Metered spaces are usually available on Johnson Street directly east of Krueger Library (meters accept quarters only). Otherwise, allow for enough time to walk up to 4 blocks for free street parking.
