View Testing Center Hours

The CSM Testing Centers provide facilities for faculty to schedule individual Make-Up Tests and tests for Distance Learning, Online, and Independent Study courses.

Please be aware that the Testing Centers do not provide full-classroom testing services, but do administer make-up tests for individual students. 

The Testing Centers will not:

  • Collect homework or additional assignments from students.
  • Distribute homework or additional assignments to students.
  • Administer full classroom exams for courses that are not: online, hybrid, distance learning, or independent study.
  •  Ensure your syllabus clearly states your testing policy for all students.
  •  Fully complete a Testing Center Cover Sheet (found below).

All directions for test administration must be included on the Test Cover Sheet.  This includes: course information, instructor contact information, materials allowed, time limit, deadline date, and ADA accommodations if applicable.

  • Place all tests (ensuring there is at least one per student) and testing materials (class roster, SCANTRONs, etc.) in the test envelope. Attach the completed Cover Sheet to the outside of the envelope of test materials.
  • Drop tests off at the Testing Center of your choice, and tests will be delivered to the necessary campus.  Please be sure to allow at least 2 business days for test materials to be sent between campuses. Be aware that there is no campus mail service on Saturdays.
  • For online exams that do not require any that any physical handouts be distributed, you can submit a completed Testing Center Cover Sheet and roster via email.

Exam Pickup Policy

  • In order to preserve exam security, instructors who are unfamiliar to Testing Center staff or other affiliated support staff will be asked to provide photo ID when they come to pick up test materials.
  • It is the instructor's responsibility to pick up their exams. The Testing Centers must be notified in advance if another department faculty member or CSM staff member will be picking up exams on your behalf.
