Assessment Computer Lab Drop-In Testing Hours

DROP-IN COMPUTER LAB TESTING SCHEDULE

Drop-in computerized testing for Spring 2015 enrollment begins October 27. You should complete Assessment as soon as is reasonably possible based on your schedule and test availability. Students may test only once per testing period, so it is important that you are prepared on the day you choose to test.

Before testing, complete the steps on the REAP test preparation & check-in sheet. 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: allow 2 hours for English and 1-2 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.
