Temporary safety precautions: Athens campus Testing Services follows the Presidential Health Directives and OHIO’s interim policy 44.102 for community health requirements. In addition to the health directives outlined in the above two resources, the Testing Center will also implement the measures below to decrease density and comply with the above policy and health directives:

  • All student examinations will need to be scheduled at least 24-hours prior to the exam. Testing capacity is limited, please schedule your exam as soon as you are able to secure your exam time. 

  • Social distancing markers have been placed on the floor of the Testing Center. We expect students and staff to follow social distancing guidelines and use the social distancing markers to ensure proper distancing between themselves and other students and staff.

  • On-premise waiting is allowed for a limited number of test-takers, on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

  • Test taker processing may take longer than usual. All test takers are expected to come prepared for their exam (e.g., make sure you have a photo ID with you or if an exam has a fee it is expected that students have paid the fee prior to arriving at the Testing Center).
