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 Testing Center Makeup Test for each student. Once a faculty member has authorized the make-up exam, students should contact (804) 827-8108 or 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.
