San Jacinto College Testing Centers offer proctoring services for students enrolled in a San Jac course who need to take a make-up exam or test with approved accommodations for that course.
The Testing Centers offer these services on a select basis and do not operate as academic test centers similar to those at other institutions.
Make-up testing at the Testing Center is typically for students who miss a San Jac coursework test due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance. Need is determined on an individual basis between the student and instructor. This service is not intended for an entire class as a result of class cancellation, campus closure or other similar circumstances.
This service is not available for mid-term or final exams, nor is it available for general make-up testing during mid-term and final exam weeks.
Students who know of an upcoming absence should seek to make alternate arrangements with their instructor.
Testing with accommodations at the Testing Center is for students with accommodations approved by Accessibility Services. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis between the student and Accessibility Services. Exact accommodations are detailed on the Accommodation Notice provided to students to share with their instructor(s).
Students must inform their instructor at least 48 hours prior to their initial or remaining test/exam that they will be utilizing testing accommodations. If a student fails to inform their instructor prior to the allotted time, the student may forfeit the accommodation for that test.
If you are eligible to receive testing accommodations, please meet with Accessibility Services to ensure you receive the appropriate accommodations and learn how they can apply to your test(s).
You should meet with your instructor to determine an appropriate test date/time. Your instructor will schedule the test on your behalf and submit a Faculty Instruction Sheet providing test instructions and appointment details. All appointments must be scheduled in person with Testing Center staff at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the appointment.
Your instructor must submit any requests to reschedule with Testing Center staff.
San Jac Testing Centers have a responsibility to faculty, students and the community to maintain testing integrity and appropriately respond to any infractions that may occur. We administer San Jac coursework tests in accordance with policy, rules and guidelines set forth by the San Jac Student Handbook, specifically as detailed per Procedure V.5001.B.a.
Testing Center staff will stop testing for any examinee who commits an alleged testing infraction while taking a San Jac coursework test. After correcting the alleged infraction and collecting any unauthorized aids, staff will allow the examinee to resume if the alleged infraction is minor as defined below; however, staff will not allow the examine to resume and will dismiss the examinee from the Testing Center if the alleged infraction is major. Multiple minor alleged infractions may also result in staff not allowing an examinee to resume and dismissing the examinee from the Testing Center.
Currently defined major infractions include, but are not limited to:
- Cheating: Using unauthorized testing aids, colluding with an individual and impersonating or having someone impersonate the examinee during a test.
- Bribery: Offering or accepting monetary or other compensation in exchange for test assistance or other benefit.
- Theft: Removing or attempting to remove test material or other privileged material from the Testing Center.
- Disruption or violence: Acting in a manner that causes a disruption to other examinees or threat to any individual.
Currently defined minor infractions include, but are not limited to:
- General non-compliance: Failing to follow staff instructions and/or testing guidelines regarding test materials, breaks, etc.
Other actions and behaviors not defined here may be regarded as a major or minor infraction at the Testing Center's discretion depending on the nature and severity of the action and behavior.
Staff will complete a Notice of Testing Infraction form detailing the incident and submit the form and all collected materials to their Testing Coordinator for review in collaboration with the Dean of Student Records & College Registrar as well as the Dean of Student Development and instructor.
The appropriate instructional leader and/or instructor, or designee, will determine appropriate disciplinary action.
