A wide variety of testing services are provided to prospective students, current students, graduates and the community at large. Prospective students participate in COMPASS (computer adaptive) assessment testing to help determine their readiness for college-level classes. Once prospective students complete COMPASS, advisors help them interpret the results. Current students use the center for department make-up exams and Anytime/Anywhere exams for distance-delivered courses.

English Language Acquisition (ELA) tests are given to incoming students whose native language is not English. The Emergency Medical Services testing, retake examinations and a variety of other tests are provided as a service to community members.
