FAQ - for students

If your question is not listed here, please email us.

Can I just come to the ATC to take a test that I missed?

No.  If you miss a test due to an excused absence, ask your instructor to send a request form to us to authorize you to test.  We will then send you an email with your testing options.

I should be getting extra time or other accomodations for my test.  Do I contact the ATC?

No.  Students who receive any type of accommodation should contact the ADS Testing Center.

I am trying to schedule my test at the link you sent me, but I am getting an error that says the test is restricted.  What should I do?

Your CCU email address must be keyed in EXACTLY in order for you to register.  Check that first.  If you still have problems, call the ATC at 843-349-4011.

I am trying to schedule my test at the link you sent me, but it says there are "no open dates" for my test OR I can't find an appointment that works for me.  What should I do?

If there are no available appointments in your testing date range OR if the appointments that are available don't work with your schedule, you'll need to use the walk-in testing option as described on the email we sent you.

I missed my appointment.  Now what?

Our scheduling system does not allow you to reschedule a missed appointment.  If you miss your appointment, you will need to follow the instructions on the email we sent you for walk-in testing.

I was not able to get to the ATC to take my test before my testing deadline.  What should I do?

Contact your instructor to see if it is possible to extend your deadline.  Your instructor must contact the ATC by email to extend the deadline or we will not be able to test you.

I have heard the ATC environment is different than a classroom.  How so?

The ATC is a certified testing center with the National College Testing Association (NCTA), which has strict guidelines to which we must adhere. The ATC also administers many types of tests for various professional testing companies which require certain testing room protocols.  We do our best to make our testers feel comfortable and relaxed, but it may be helpful for you to review our Security and Testing Policies before you come.
