Testing Center Guidelines
The Collin College Testing Centers have developed the following guidelines to ensure that our services are provided in a secure, confidential and efficient manner:
  • Students must present a Collin College ID card for all instructors' exams. For all other assessments and examinations, any type of picture ID is acceptable. No one will be allowed to test without proper identification.

  • Any items not required for your exam including notes, books, purses, calculators and/or cell phones must be left outside of the testing room. Lockers are provided for your convenience. Cell phones, pagers, and all other electronic devices must be turned off. Cell phone calculators are not allowed in the testing room. The Testing Center assumes no responsibility for personal belongings.

  • Testing Center personnel visually monitor students while testing. Closed-circuit cameras are used to monitor and record all activity in the Testing Centers. Any infractions of the Student Code of Conduct while testing will be reported to the instructor and to the Dean of Students Office.

  • No phone calls are allowed while taking an exam.

  • Food and drinks are not allowed in the testing room.

  • Once you begin an exam, you must complete it in one sitting, unless otherwise indicated by your instructor.

  • You are expected to test independently.

  • Respect others by remaining quiet during your exam.

  • Color-coding is used to seat students to maximize test security. You will be instructed which desk to occupy. You may be moved at any time at the discretion of Testing Center personnel.

  • Only students taking exams are allowed in the Testing Center - no children, pets, etc...

  • When your exam is completed, all exam materials, including scratch paper, must be given to the Testing Center staff. You may not leave with any notes or any portion of the exam.

  • All exams are collected at closing time, even if not complete. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure they have enough time to complete the exam.

  • Testing Center personnel may end a test session if all directions and procedures are not followed.

  • If you have any questions or concerns before, during, or after your exam, please notify Testing Center personnel.
