Testing Center Policies

All registration is encouraged as early as possible. First-time students must register for a placement test appointment prior to testing. Students requesting proctored mid-term or final exams must make an appointment in advance of testing.  Occasionally, same day appointments are available; however, there is no guaranteed availability. 

Students who require accommodations due to a disability must coordinate testing services with the Access*Ability Resource Center (ARC).  Please contact the ARC at (502) 213-7127 or nicole.hines@kctcs.edu to discuss testing accommodations and guidelines.

All Assessment Centers operate under the Jefferson inclement weather policy. Students are strongly encouraged to register with KCTCS Snap Alerts.

Students are required to check in with Assessment Staff upon arrival and before accessing their personal belongings and leaving the center
