The staff will make every effort to assist you; however, sometimes emergencies such as power or server outages or inclement weather can cause the college and Testing Services to close without warning. Do not wait until the last minute to test; give yourself enough time to test so you will do well. Most exams are administered on a walk-in basis; however, please note that office hours vary by campus location.
Please check the corresponding webpages to ensure you do not have to schedule an appointment to take your quiz/test/exam or for appointment information. High school or other college partnership programs needing information on College Placement Test administration for prospective students who are involved in campus-related or high school outreach programs should contact the Dual Enrollment Department.
Hours and Locations
The Testing Center stops administering academic tests exactly one hour before closing and places a notice on the door indicating that “Testing has ended for the day”. The Testing Center’s official clock/timepiece (hours and minutes of the day) is synchronized with the Microsoft time server. We DO NOT use other timed devices (watches, cell phones, hall clocks, etc.). Students are strongly encouraged to arrive early and bring a valid photo id, student ID number, course name and number, instructor’s name and exam name. Exams passes must be completed before entering the Testing Center. VCCS requires that all students read and be aware of the Information Technology Ethics if they use any of the computers at Germanna.View Hours and Locations
