Testing Services

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

1. Students with disabilities who require special testing accommodations (Click here for more information)

2. Students with special circumstances such as:

  • 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.

Procedure and Requirements for Scheduling an Exam in CAS

Students are required to schedule an appointment to take their exam (and inform their professor) 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. 

Appointments may only be made between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday - Friday. 

The appointment request will only be approved by a CAS staff member once they have received verification from the professor, and appropriate documentation from the student. If a student comes to CAS to take an exam but we have not received authorization or documentation, the student will not be allowed to take the exam. 

*Special accommodations can be made for students with an excused absence due to serious illness or medical issues.  If you need to take an exam within 48 hours, please schedule a meeting with CAS, and make sure to bring documentation regarding your excused absence.

The Center for Academic Success will only approve a testing appointment and 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 within 24 hours of the student's testing appointment, we can not approve the appointment.  It is the responsibility of the student to notify their professor.  It is also the responsibility of the student to follow up with CAS if they do not receive a confirmation e-mail approving their appointment.

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.

*CAS does not proctor quizzes. 

No-Show Policy:

No-show is defined as an individual who did not cancel or reschedule a scheduled appointment 24 hours prior to their appointment. CAS maintains and updates the no-show list daily. If a student misses his/her appointment, both the student and professor will be notified. However, CAS will not make appointments for anyone who has no-showed on two occasions. After one no-show, a student will have to meet with the testing assistant and the CAS director to review the no show policy and to make another testing appointment.  After two no-shows, the student will be unable to make an appointment for the remainder of the semester. 

Eastern Nazarene College’s Academic Integrity Policy

A cornerstone of academia is a commitment to academic integrity. In a scholarly community, the importance of having respect for one’s own work (and the work of others) is essential; building a sense of trust among members of such a community is crucial as individuals create, share, and apply scholarly work. The importance of academic integrity is heightened within a Christian community of scholars in that we are also accountable to God for any behaviors of a dishonest nature. In consultation with administrators, faculty, and students, Eastern Nazarene College has set forth basic standards of academic integrity.

Standards of Academic Integrity

At Eastern Nazarene College, integrity and honesty are expected and required in all activities associated in any way with academic course work. While it is not prudent nor practical to attempt to specify an exhaustive list of unacceptable behaviors related to academic integrity, examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cheating (e.g., using any unauthorized materials or devices during an examination, allowing other students to submit your work under their name, changing responses on an exam after it has been graded, etc.).
  • Plagiarism, which is presenting the work of others as your own, either directly or by implication (e.g., not giving credit to the original source for any thoughts, ideas, quotations, charts, and so forth that may be included in one’s own work, etc.).
  • Falsifying information (e.g., reporting of undocumented data, fabricating a set of data, fabricating volunteer hours required for a course, signing the attendance sheet for an absent student, etc.).
  • Stealing and/or distributing exams which have not been authorized for release or otherwise taking advantage of dishonest behavior for the purpose of gaining an unfair academic advantage.

CAS Testing Policy and Violation

Students, who wish to use CAS testing services, are expected to uphold the college’s standard of academic integrity.  This means that students are not allowed to use any unauthorized materials; take or receive cell phone calls or text messages; access the internet; view books or study sheets; speak to other test takers or view another test taker’s materials during their testing session in CAS (unless authorized by the professor and the Office of Accommodations and Access). Students who violate CAS testing policy will be reported to the CAS director, the professor, Registrar, and the Academic Standing Committee for disciplinary action. Violating CAS testing policy may also result in the following: no credit for the test, possible failure of the course, and possible suspension or expulsion from the College.
