Academic Testing for PTCC Students

Testing: Alternative

Alternative Testing is available to PTCC students who have been approved for testing accommodations through the Director of Disability Services. Each consecutive semester students will be required to meet with Disability Services to pre-arrange for accommodated testing.

Testing: Make-Up

PTCC Testing Center offers make-up test proctoring for those students who, due to an emergency situation and/or unforeseeable circumstances, are not able to attend the original exam date for their registered course. Make-up testing is offered based on space and staffing availability and during regular Testing Center hours.

Please note that Makeup Testing Services are not to be used as general alternate test dates for students and will only be used if approved by faculty.
