Make-Up Testing

The testing Center can serve as an alternate facility to proctor make-up exams for students with extenuating circumstances, such as illness or family emergencies, that prohibit them from taking an exam during their scheduled class time. Make-up exams are given at no-charge for registered Pikes Peak State College students. Exams are administered during normal Testing Center hours.
