General Rules

  • ID is required for all exams.

For proctored exams and CSN instructor exams, you will need a valid and unexpired ID: a government-issued ID or an ID with name, picture, and either date of birth or signature.

  • Please note other institutions have stricter requirements or proof of ID to test.
  • CSN IDs are not valid for testing.
  • If you are a current CCSD student, a recent year ID from your high school is acceptable.
  • Photos/Phone pictures of ID are not Valid Forms of ID.
  • Please observe our cut-off times. These times are designed to be fair to all students.
  • Please observe decorum and respect our quiet environment. Disturbances in the Testing Center are grounds for security and/or police action.
  • All students are treated as if they are 18 or older.

We are not granted access to student lists and cannot divulge test grades or student information to anyone other than the student.

  • It is the student's responsibility to know what exams they need when they arrive for testing.

The Test Center staff will not know which exam you need.

  • Exam Appointments are for a single exam.
    • Outside proctor appointments made with less time than allowed on the exam may be stopped at the appointed time, or, if space is available, the Testing Center may continue the proctoring if the additional fee is paid.
  • For special accommodations for disabilities, please visit the Disability Resource Center.
