Make-up testing is a service that the college provides for students who missed their tests or quizzes in class. Students should refer to the course syllabus and/or consult with the course instructor to review the instructor’s make-up testing policy. Students who miss an exam in class and need to make it up must first reach out to the course instructor before scheduling an appointment with the Testing Center.

On-campus:  Monday - Friday – 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Remote:  Remote testing is upon request by emailing or calling (845) 790-3733.

If more time is needed for a test, students should book multiple consecutive appointments.
