Prior to Coming in for Testing!
  • Complete the Student Success Inventory prior to taking the test. (ask Assessment staff)
How do I put my name on the WAIT LIST?
  • Check the testing calendar for test dates and times.
  • Arrive early on the day of test to place yourself on the WAIT LIST. The earlier the better.
  • Ask the staff of the Assessment Center to put you on the WAIT LIST for the test you want to take. This may only be done in person on the day of the test.
