Testing Services serves as a test center for outside schools or institutions that offer online or correspondence courses. These can be taken in our facility as either paper and pencil or online tests.
The cost to take a proctored test for non-UC classes is $35 for the first 2 hours of testing and $5 an hour for every hour after that.
To set up an exam to be proctored by our office, first contact your school or institution to receive permission to take your test at UC. If contact information is needed, provide them with the following:
UC Testing Services
2618 McMicken Circle 100 University Pavilion
Cincinnati, OH 45221
Proctor Supervisor: Paula Doughman
It is the test taker's responsibility to ensure that your school or institution sends the test along with detailed proctoring and return instructions. Test takers are responsible for bringing an addressed and stamped envelope (at minimum standard legal size 9 ¾ by 14 ½ inches) or paid courier envelope and label if the test must be mailed back. Testing Services will not cover the cost for return shipping.
Tests may be sent to us via mail, email, USPS, or courier service. Please be advised that USPS estimated times might be delayed by 1 or 2 days since the test must go through our campus mail system. It is your responsibility to make sure the exam materials are received by us in time to meet any exam deadlines put in place by your institution. Please schedule all tests at least 2 days prior to the testing date. Tests must be completed by the time our office closes on the day of testing.
Once you are given permission to take your exam here, you may set up an appointment during our normal Proctored Test Hours. Our registration system can be accessed here. We recommend that you contact us and confirm receipt of the exam prior to your appointment. Be sure to pay close attention to when your test must be received by your institution, and make your appointment with plenty of time to account for test return via the US Postal Service or a courier.
