General Info

The SAS Testing Center provides exam proctoring by appointment for Cerritos College students who have been approved for academic accommodations in the current semester. 

The Testing Center provides a distraction-reduced environment and extended time (in accordance with the student’s individualized accommodations) for class exams. Computers are available for exams that require them, and/or for students who utilize assistive technology software. CCTVs, hand-held magnifiers, copy stands, EZ score answer sheets, and the assistance of a reader or scribe are also available.

The SAS Testing Center maintains policies and practices that help ensure the security and integrity of all exams, and is committed to the College’s standards for academic honesty. In addition, all students will be asked to sign a Testing Center Student Agreement to acknowledge that they understand, and agree to, the rules and responsibilities of using the Testing Center services.

Scheduling Exams

Students with approved testing accommodations may schedule appointments to take their class exams in the SAS Testing Center with a minimum of one (1) week advance notice for regular tests or quizzes. Please note that final exams require two (2) weeks advance notice. Exams are to be scheduled according to the class syllabus or calendar – on the day and time scheduled by the instructor.

Adjusting Exam Dates

Requests made to the SAS Testing Center to adjust an exam date established in the course syllabus will need to be determined on a case-by-case basis with instructor consultation. Students that have disability-related emergencies prohibiting them from taking the exam as scheduled must contact their SAS Specialist immediately, or soon thereafter, to assess the reasonableness of the request. Make-up exams cannot be guaranteed but will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

SAS Testing Center Exam Deadline

Students that request testing accommodations with less than one (1) week notice do not provide the SAS Testing Center with a timely notice to coordinate the service. The SAS Testing Center will make a good faith effort to accommodate students who do not request proctoring in a timely fashion on a case-by-case basis. However, SAS may be unable to provide exam accommodations to any student request that is received less than one (1) week in advance of the test date.
