On Campus Testing

Schedule Your ExamAll testing is by appointment only


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.

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.

NOTE: NC State is pleased to offer Online and Distance Education students and non-degree seeking (NDS) students an NC State Wolfpack One card, services located in the Talley Student Center on Main Campus. Students are able to deposit funds into an All Campus Account, an easy way to make purchases across campus using the Wolfpack One Card. The card is accepted at NC State Dining, including vending machines, NC State Stores, including Wolfpack Outfitters, Wolf Xpress Print & Copy and State of the Art, and WolfPrint Campus Printers (*All Campus Account is the only way to pay for WolfPrint copies). Students studying in D.H. Hill Library and/or the Hunt Library prior to visiting DELTA Test Centers for exams would benefit from the Wolfpack One card.

*Remote students are eligible to receive an NC State Wolfpack One card as distance education students. Cards can be mailed at no cost and are like other NC State Campus ID cards, with the exception of a student photo.
