Academic Honesty- students must sign the “Identification Form for the Assessment & Testing Center" before each exam. This form details prohibited items and expected conduct. Please note that all students must adhere to the SCF Standards of Student Behavior listed on the website and in the Student Handbook & Planner. Staff will document any violations of testing rules on the Irregularity Form.   One copy of this form will be kept in the DRC student file and another copy will be sent to the instructor along with the exam.

Scheduling Exams- it is the student’s responsibility to schedule the exam at least  5 BUSINESS days prior to the testing date. Please note that if the student fails to follow the procedure, the DRC and Assessment/Testing Center may not be able to accommodate the request. The student will be referred to the course instructor to make arrangements.  Students have the option of coordinating testing accommodation with the course instructor, working collaboratively independent of the DRC. Exams should be scheduled at the same time as your class, or as close to the class time as possible.  Evening course  exams need to schedule during open testing center hours.
