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 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.

I won't use my entire time allotted for my exam, can I come to test after 2:00 pm?

No. The ATC does not start exams outside of our walk-in hours (7:30 am - 2:00 pm). Please note, the ATC is required to administer your exam with the full time allowed. For example, if you are allowed 3 hours for a test, you must begin testing no later than 1:00 pm.
