Frequently Asked Questions
Who is allowed to use Testing Services?
Testing Services are available to all students who have accommodations through the university or have an excused absence due to an athletic or medical event. Knowledge of expected absences should be communicated with the instructor when the absence is confirmed as exams are often requested to be completed prior the expected absence. The student should communicate with the instructor as soon as possible regarding any unexpected absences.
What if my exam is through ProctorU?
ProctorU is a an online proctoring service often required for online exams. This service is not associated with the Testing Services provided through the SASS office.
Students who need to take an exam through ProctorU will need to schedule their appointment through the ProctorU website. A system check is available to make sure your computer meets the ProctorU requirements. The ProctorU helpdesk can assist with any issues accessing or completing your exam.

Why do I need to schedule my exam appointment so early?
Exams must be scheduled 3 days in advance to allow time for Testing Services to communicate with the instructor, receive the exam, and troubleshoot any possible scheduling conflicts that may arise from the original exam appointment. Such conflicts may include the requested appointment does not align with the original exam time, the exam date has been moved after the appointment was made, or the instructor may request the exam be taken at an alternate time.
What if I need to schedule an exam within three days?
The 3-day rule is in place to provide the best possible management of the Testing Services while allowing enough time for students to make appointments within the same week. We suggest students make their exam appointments based on the provided syllabus at the beginning of each semester. The online schedule allows students to make appointments from the first day of the classes through the week of final exams.
If an exam is moved to an earlier time that may conflict with the 3-day rule, the student should contact Testing Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an appointment. Their request will be verified with the instructor and the appointment will be made based on availability. These requests should be infrequent and are not guaranteed to be approved.
