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. on Mondays and Thursdays in FLD 115 (Field Conference Room).
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.
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.
To cancel or reschedule a classroom test or annual assessment, please call 314.392.2364 or email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 1 hour prior to your appointment. Three “missed” appointments without cancellation or rescheduling will disable your testing account and you will not be able to use the Testing Center again until you speak with the Testing Center Staff.
