Assessment Computer Lab Drop-In Testing Hours

DROP-IN COMPUTER LAB TESTING SCHEDULE

Drop-in computerized testing for Summer and Fall 2015 enrollment begins March 16. You should complete Assessment as soon as is reasonably possible based on your schedule and test availability. Ideally, plan to test before your individual registration day/time. You may look up your priority registration appointment day and time on Pipeline.  Students may test only once per testing period, so it is important that you are prepared on the day you choose to test. The best way to prepare for Assessment is to complete the steps on the REAP test preparation & check-in sheet. You will need to bring the REAP form and a photo I.D. with you to testing.

Testing hours vary. Consult the monthly Drop-In Computer Lab Testing Schedule below and plan to test on a scheduled testing day. All tests must be completed by closing: please allow 2 hours for English and 1 to 2 hours for math. Note: if you need extended time or another accommodation for disability, you must make alternative testing arrangements prior to testing. Visit sbcc.edu/dsps for more information.
