Computer-Based Testing:  Register as early as possible before your desired test date. Due to the amount of time required to process a registration, you may not be able to schedule a test appointment if you register within three calendar days of the day on which you plan to take the test. Test appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and seating is limited. 

Parking Directions:  Students should use Entrance #1 on S. Bradley Rd. Have $2 ready to purchase a daily parking permit from one of the yellow parking permit machines so you won’t get a ticket on campus, then park in any white-striped stall. Enter the Student Services building and take the elevator to the 2nd floor. Exit to your left, then turn left again to walk across the bridge to the Testing Center in A-404.
