RCTC Testing Center

The RCTC Testing Center is located in AT 209, across the hall from Campus Safety.

HOURS:
8:00 AM- 4:30 PM Monday through Friday

PLEASE NOTE THE TESTING CENTER WILL BE CLOSED JUNE 30, 2017 - JULY 5, 2017. NO TESTING WILL BE ACCOMMODATED DURING THIS TIME.

Students must contact the center at least 1 business day prior to taking any exams. NO DROP IN TESTING will be accommodated.

A PHOTO ID IS REQUIRED TO TAKE ANY SCHEDULED EXAM. Students who do not have a photo ID upon arriving at the Testing Center will NOT BE ALLOWED to test, even with verbal identification from staff or faculty.

RCTC and WSU offers testing services in a secure, quiet environment for students who cannot take a scheduled class exam.  This has proven to be a valuable service as it is sometimes difficult to coordinate a time when students and instructors can meet for a monitored exam outside of class.  In addition, students taking online or traditional courses at institutions other than RCTC and WSU may also arrange for testing times. The Testing Center also offers CLEP, DSST and Kryterion testing.

Please note that the RCTC Testing Center cannot accommodate entire classes.  This also means that instructors cannot use the testing services as a substitute for regular in-class exams. 

To schedule an exam time, students should contact the RCTC Testing Center at least one business day in advance.  NOTE: Drop-in services cannot be accommodated. This means that instructors cannot drop off exams and have students drop in during testing hours to take an exam without making an appointment. 

RCTC students with disabilities should be referred to Travis Kromminga, Director of Disability Services, at (507) 280-2968. WSU students with disabilities should be referred to Nancy Dumke, Assistant Director of the Disability Resource Center, at (800) 342-5978.
