Heartland Course Testing

We administer exams at the request of the instructor.

If you need to take a make-up exam, or a quiz/exam for your online or hybrid course in the Testing Center on campus, you should work with your instructor to make sure it is available during the Testing Center's hours and by the instructor's deadline.

The following guidelines have been established:

  • A Photo ID is required for all testing
  • Please arrive to the Testing Center knowing your course number, instructor's name and your student ID number for check-in
  • In order to take your exam, your name must be listed on your instructor's request form
  • We will not administer exams after the instructor-specified deadline
  • Book bags and other belongings must be stored in a provided locker
  • Cell phones, smart watches and all other non-medical electronic devices must be silenced and stored in a provided locker
  • Due to unique circumstances presented by testing situations, children are not allowed in the testing area
  • Only water bottles are allowed in the testing room after they are checked by staff
  • Academic integrity is expected of all students. Suspected violations will be reported to the appropriate Director
  • Exams cannot be started within 30 minutes of closing
  • All exams are collected at closing

Remote Testing

Can't make it to campus to test for your online or hybrid course? Find a testing center in your area to arrange a remote test, and have the exam returned to your instructor. Please note that various proctoring fees and scheduling requirements may apply.

Special Accommodations

Alternative testing is an appropriate service for many students with special needs. Testing accommodations for students with documented disabilities must be arranged by the student through the Disability Support Services (DSS) office. For more information on what documentation is required, contact Disability Support Services at 309-268-8259. 

Students requiring extended time only for testing needs may complete exams during regular Testing Center hours. To test with a separate area, assistive technology, or other accommodations, please schedule an appointment with Disability Support Services at least 48 hours in advance. 

Faculty Use

To have an exam proctored through the Testing Center, submit a Request for Testing Form (PDF). More information on faculty use of the Testing Center can be found on our Faculty Guidelines document (PDF).
