Test Information


National College and Professional School Exams

Examination Services offers credit by examination, certification examinations, and most major national college and professional school entrance exams. Services are provided to enrolled UNI graduate and undergraduate students, non-UNI students, and non-students.

Exams are administered by trained, certified professionals via the Internet (computer-based) and/or the paper-pencil method. Examination Services adheres to the National College Testing Association Professional Standards and Guidelines, to ensure the delivery of quality testing services in a welcoming, secure environment. 

Before registering for an exam, we highly recommend you carefully read the information on the testing company's website. It is extremely important that you explicitly follow their administrative procedures. 


Proctoring Services

Examination Services assists the University of Northern Iowa's Office of Student Accessibility Services in proctoring exams to currently-enrolled students working with their office. Exam accommodations should be coordinated by the instructor utilizing their own department facilities. However, if appropriate facilities are unavailable, Examination Services (in coordination with the Office of Student Accessibility Services) may be able to administer the exam with one week notice.

We are also a participant of the Consortium of College Testing Centers (CCTC), sponsored by the National College Testing Association (NCTA).  The CCTC offers an opportunity for students enrolled in distance education courses to take examinations at a member testing center. Exams are offered through the Internet or by traditional paper-pencil method in a controlled, proctored environment. UNI Examination Services is under no obligation to deliver any exams and may refuse requests based on time commitments, technical issues, or other exam-based requirements. Administration procedures, payment for services, scheduling, and other details must be worked out between the examinee, the test provider (professor, department, home institution, etc.), and UNI Examination Services prior to the exam.


Testing Accommodations

Individuals with special needs who require testing accommodations should visit the University of Northern Iowa's Office of Accessibility Services (for currently-enrolled UNI students only) and/or the testing company's website for information and to request accommodations. You must follow the accommodation request procedures of the testing company. Please do not schedule your exam before your accommodation has been approved.
