Center for Academic Success: Faculty Resources

Testing Policies

In order to qualify for testing accommodations in the Center for Academic Success, students must fall under one of the following two categories:

  • Students with disabilities who require special testing accommodations
  • Students with special circumstances such as:
    • Students involved in a school-related event that conflicts with an exam date
    • Students requiring an excused absence due to illness and/or other medical issues
    • ENC Students enrolled in a distance education program at another institution

Requirements and Procedures for Scheduling an Exam in CAS

Students are required to schedule an appointment to take their exam at least five days before the exam date and time. This rule exists for the following reasons:

  • To ensure that there is sufficient time before the appointment for CAS to schedule a proctor for the exam.
  • To allow time for preparations to be made in the event that certain accommodations are required. 
  • To ensure that the appropriate testing materials have been received from the professor. 

The CAS offers testing services between the hours of 9:00am—5:00pm, Monday—Friday. Appointments can be booked online at http://libguides.enc.edu/CAS/testing. The appointment request will only be approved by a CAS staff member once they have received verification from the professor. If a student comes to CAS to take an exam but we have not received authorization, the student will not be allowed to take the exam. 

The Center for Academic Success will only administer an exam to a student whose professor has directly authorized CAS to do so. 

Students are responsible for informing their professor of their scheduled exam date and time in the Center for Academic Success and ensuring that the required test has been submitted in the appropriate manner. If CAS has not received the testing materials required, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the professor. 

If the student misses his/her appointment, both the student and professor will be notified. It is the professor's discretion whether or not the student will be allowed to book a new appointment. The CAS will not reschedule an appointment without authorization from the professor.

Faculty Procedures

Sending Exams

Exams can be emailed to cas@enc.edu or can be delivered to the CAS in person. The faculty member should include a CAS Exam Confirmation Form (cover sheet) for each exam and student they are authorizing to test in the Center for Academic Success. This form provides CAS with information needed to proctor the exam and serves as the authorization for the student to receive testing services in CAS. 

The faculty member is expected to send the exam at least 48 hours in advance of the student’s testing appointment. The student is responsible for informing the faculty member of his/her appointment date and time.

Receiving Exams

There are three methods by which faculty can receive completed exams: campus mail, email, or pick up. The faculty member should specify his/her preferred method on the CAS Exam Confirmation Sheet that is sent with the exam. Once an exam is completed, the professor will receive a response from CAS within the next 48 hours (business days).  Please note that if a student completes an exam on a Friday, the professor may not receive a notice from CAS until Tuesday.

NOTE: The CAS does not recommend the use of campus mail for the delivery or return of exams. The CAS is not responsible for any missing or lost exams sent through the ENC campus mail service.
