Individuals who need to have an exam proctored may make an appointment to take the exam in the Testing Center during normal business hours by calling (217) 244-1342 and making arrangements with the Coordinator for Individual Testing, or other staff member. Individuals must pay all applicable fees at time of testing (exact change in cash, checks, credit, and debit cards are now accepted). Fees are based upon the type and length of test. Please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance to determine the fee for your specific test. Exams should be scheduled at least 5 business days prior to desired appointment date. Those requesting exams in a shorter time frame will be assessed an additional $20 for UIUC students and $50 for non-UIUC students. Expedited requests will only be accommodated if staff is available. Individuals not cancelling their exam within five business days prior to their appointment will be required to pay an additional $20 (UIUC students) or $50 (non-students) "no show" fee in order to reschedule or to take any future tests at the Center. Individuals arriving 30 minutes or more late to a test appointment may be turned away depending on availability. If turned away, a "no show" fee will be assessed and must be paid in order to reschedule the exam.
The Testing Center maintains a very high level of security and only test takers are allowed in the center. Individuals wishing to use our services must agree to comply with Center and test owner policies. All possessions (including watches, wallets, phones, etc.) will be placed in a secure locker.
