Center for Testing & Assessment

Proctored Exams

All tests must be scheduled with an appointment, prior to coming onto campus.

The CMCC Center for Testing & Assessment is used for administering computer-based academic and vocational exams. Tests are administered by appointment only, and are available to the public. With convenient hours to accommodate your busy schedule, you can fit in the testing you need to get ahead in work and life.

Closures: The Center for Testing & Assessment is closed when CMCC closes for Holidays or Snow Closures. When CMCC closes unexpectedly due to weather, we notify the testing vendor and they typically follow-up with test candidates. If this happens on the day of your exam, please contact your vendor to reschedule.
