Face Coverings

The Testing Center and A&M-Commerce requires the use of face coverings in the Welcome Center and testing lab by staff and testers/visitors.  Testers refusing to wear face coverings will not be allowed to test and will forfeit all testing fees.

Removal of Face Covering

  • Remove face coverings by the straps and move it gently away from your face. Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing.
  • If your face covering is disposable, then promptly throw it away in a waste container.
  • If you have a reusable cloth face covering, make sure you wash it after use.

Test Day Reminders:

All testing appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of your desired testing date and time. We cannot accommodate same-day testers or walk-ins.

For ALL exams you will be asked to present a valid photo ID. For most exams offered at the Testing Center, a valid driver's license, government issued ID, or passport will work, however, make sure you have the appropriate type of ID for the exam you are taking. Some exams require a secondary ID.  Know the requirements of the exam you are taking BEFORE you arrive.

*If you have questions about your ID, contact the testing company that owns your desired exam or the Testing Center well in advance of your scheduled exam.

Children

Children are not allowed in the Testing Center.  Children cannot be left unattended without an adult in the The Welcome Center, surrounding buildings or parking lots while you test. This policy includes test administrations in other buildings on the A&M-Commerce campus or off-site testing locations.  

Testers that arrive with children will not be allowed to test and will need to reschedule their exam for another day.  You will forfeit your testing fees and must repay in order to reschedule your exam for professional/certification exams or any exam registered through a third-party company such as, but not limited to, TExES, TOEFL, CPCE, NCE or SCANTRON.

Storage

For security reasons, lockers are provided for small personal items.  These may not be accessed during testing.  Examinees that utilize lockers are responsible for damage to lockers or lost keys, and can be assessed fees to cover the cost of lost keys and/or damage. It is advised that you leave non-essential personal items or items too big to be placed in lockers at home or locked securely in your car. The Testing Center is not responsible for lost, misplaced, or stolen items.
