Adjusted Hours for Testing Services
UCO Testing Services resumed on-campus testing June 3, by appointment only. To comply with UCO COVID-19 policies, there will be limited seating and additional safety protocols for examinations. During the month of June, UCO Testing Services will only administer Computerized Placement Tests (CPTs) and Funeral Board exams. Beginning in July, our office will resume all other examinations except for Proctored Exams (classroom exams).
If students needing CPTs are unable to come to campus, remote proctoring is available. Remote proctoring is available through third-party service providers: Reading and Writing (ACCUPLACER) tests can be taken through Examity, and Math (ALEKS) tests can be taken through ProctorU.
Please note that both providers charge a fee for their service. To schedule a CPT through remote proctoring, email email@example.com with your:
- First name
- Last name
- UCO Student ID number
- State that you are requesting remote proctoring
