Welcome to the local testing guidelines page. If your instructor has registered their course to use DELTA Testing Services, this page will provide information on how to make an appointment and what to expect on test day.


  • All appointments must be made 24 hours before arriving to the testing center.
    • No walk-in testing permitted.
  • Students should arrive 15 minutes before their appointment for early check-in. To check-in:
    • You must know your unity credentials.
    • DUO Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) users must bring their registered device.
      • Codes generated by the DUO app are the preferred method of authentication for Moodle-based exams at the testing centers.

The instructor is responsible for arranging all individual exceptions with our office. If the testing center is at max capacity, the instructor may need to make alternate arrangements.
