Make-Up Testing

The Success Center offers makeup testing for students who miss a regularly scheduled exam. To ensure space in the testing room, please make an appointment to take a test by stopping by the Success Center on the first floor of ‘A’ Building or by calling 419.267.1447. There are some limited walk-in hours as well.

Please note: It is at the instructor’s discretion as to whether makeup testing is allowed in each course. Some instructors will give a makeup test during their own office hours or before or after class, while others allow makeup tests to be proctored in the Success Center. Please refer to your class syllabus for the makeup testing policy, or talk to your instructor.
