Campus Testing Center

The Campus Testing Center provides comprehensive testing services for Virginia Commonwealth University students and the greater Richmond community.

Make-up tests

The testing center provides make-up testing services to VCU faculty and students. If a faculty member chooses to offer a student a make-up exam, the center can proctor that exam in a secure and quiet facility. It is the discretion of the faculty member to choose to offer the exam to the student.

Faculty members should complete a Make-Up Test Proctor Request Form for each student. Once a faculty member has authorized the make-up exam, students should contact our testing coordinator, Mark Bassard, at (804) 827-8108 or mbassard@vcu.edu to schedule their exams.

Faculty members can submit and pick up exams Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students must bring their VCUCard to the make-up exam.

Test proctoring

The testing center offers test proctoring services for non-VCU students. Tests from outside the university can be administered in a secure environment.

Test takers should prepare for the test with the following:

  • A scheduled proctoring services appointment, which can be completed by phone, email or an in-person visit to the Campus Learning Center, Hibbs Hall, Room 120
  • A photo ID
  • A proctoring test fee of $25 for the first two hours and $10 for each additional hour (check or money order only)

Test providers should give a copy of the test to the coordinator. Contact Mark Bassard at (804) 827-8108 with any questions.

The testing center offers College-Level Examination Program testing for VCU students looking to earn credit by exam. Visit our CLEP exams page for more details.
