““It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” ― J.K. Rowling

US Students: The Testing Center will open WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22 in Room 604. This 100% quiet space is used for completing a missed assessment or any assessment requiring the testing accommodation of separate setting. This space may also be used for personal general study time. The Testing Center is proctored every block, every day.
Please know that IF YOU ARE COMPLETING A MISSED ASSESSMENT, you must arrive in the first 5 minutes of a block time. If you do so later than that, you will not be allowed to enter. This minimizes the number of interruptions for those in the Testing Center due to the opening and closing of the door.
Please be mindful of noise levels directly outside the Testing Center, and do not enter or use the Testing Center without a proctor present.
