On Campus Testing
NC State DELTA Testing Services provides local proctoring services for students to take exams in a professional, secure and monitored setting. In compliance with the SACS Distance and Correspondence Education Policy Statement ensuring student authentication, students must present photo identification and secure login and password to access examination materials.
We administer tests on a walk-in basis (no appointment necessary). Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may check Wait Time to check out expected wait times for both campus test centers.
It is the student’s responsibility to come in during the proper exam window set by the instructor. Students should arrive with enough time to complete exams prior to closing. No exam will be started after the last sign-in time. Verify the operating hours for the testing centers before planning your trip. Note that only certain classes are eligible to go to the Cox Hall Testing Center, verify your testing location with your instructor or contact DELTA Testing Services.
