Testing Services

The Student Success Center administers both make-up exams and annual assessments. Classroom Testing Services are available between 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  The Testing Center remains located in FLD 117; however, due to health & safety guidelines, students will test in FLD 115 (the conference room next to the faculty mailroom).

If you are required to take an annual assessment, you will be notified by an email to your student account.  Students who do not complete required assessments will be fined $100 and may be required to take the test in a subsequent semester.

Make-Up Testing

SSC Classroom Testing Services are designed to assist students who have approved accommodations or need to make-up a classroom exam at the discretion of the student’s instructor. Scheduling an exam with the SSC does not guarantee that a student will be allowed to make up the exam.

Testing Center policies have been updated to reflect current health & safety guidelines.

  • All exams must be scheduled at least 24-hours (one full day) before the desired appointment. Walk-in appointments are not available.
    • To schedule an appointment:
      • Visit the SSC (FLD 117/119) and schedule with a staff member, call (314) 392-2364, or email testing@mobap.edu.
    • Requests submitted after 5pm (or over the weekend) will not be received until the following business day and will follow the 24-hour protocol from when they are received.
  • After an appointment is scheduled, inform your instructor via email and request an exam be sent to the SSC. If the test is not in the SSC at the start of your appointment, you will need to reschedule for a later date.
  • Students who are more than 15 minutes late will need to reschedule for a later date. If you must miss the appointment or reschedule for any reason, contact the SSC before the scheduled appointment; otherwise, the appointment will be marked “missed”.
    • Three missed appointments will disable your account and you will not be able to use the Testing Center again until you speak with the Testing Center Staff.
  • Be aware of any materials you may need during testing, such as a calculator or Scantron. A limited number of calculators are available to borrow through the SSC.  Scantrons may be purchased from the SSC for $0.25.
  • All cell phones must be powered off and stored away during your exam. Cell phone usage during an exam will be reported to the instructor.
  • Any student caught violating the academic honesty and integrity policy will be reported to the instructor.
  • Due to space availability, no test may start earlier than 9 a.m. or finish after 3 p.m. without prior approval from the Assistant Director of Assessment. Also, please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for the appointment.  Testing center occupancy rules limit how many individuals may be in the room at the same time.
  • Face masks must be worn (covering your mouth and nose) during your time in the Testing Center. Sanitize your hands when you enter the room.
  • Once your test is complete, return your test to the Proctor and sanitize your station with the designated supplies.
