Testing Services General Policies

Testing Services provides a wide array of tests. We offer professional certification tests, GED tests, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, MHCC course make-up exams, as well as college placement options. We’re located at the Gresham Campus in Room AC2335, which is in building 13 of the Academic Center. Our goal is to ensure a comfortable and consistent testing experience.

The following policies are in place for all examinees. Please note that some exams have their own policies, which may be stricter than the general policies outlined below. 

  • Photo ID is required for all testing. 
  • Children are not permitted in the testing rooms and may not wait unsupervised in the lobby. 
  • Food and beverages are not allowed in the testing rooms. 
  • Electronic devices, purses, backpacks, and other personal items are not allowed in the testing rooms. Lockers are provided for your valuables. 
  • Most tests must be completed in one sitting. 
  • Testing will be stopped promptly at closing time. You will not be allowed to return to finish another day (with the exception of the computerized placement test). 
  • Acts of test misconduct are subject to disciplinary action.
