Testing Center

Our mission is to assist you in reaching your academic and professional goals by providing you with a secure, friendly and comfortable place to take your exams. The Testing Center has several workstations in private, semi-private and small group settings that are quiet and distraction free.

Directions to the Testing Center from Medary Avenue

There are road construction signs directing test candidates to Lots 110.  The Testing Center can be driven to by driving through the first parking Lot 110 along the north side of the Alfred Dairy Science Hall.  Turn right (south) onto College Avenue at the east end of  Lot 110.  The Testing Center is located between the Intramural Building (Barn) and Berg Ag Hall. 

Testing Center Parking

The Testing Center has three parking spots directly in front of the building.  If these are full, test candidates that are not SDSU students may obtain a parking pass from Testing Center staff to park in Lots 110 which are directly adjacent to the Testing Center and north of the Dairy Bar.  If you do not have a parking pass you risk being ticketed.
