No exceptions.

Where To Go

Check your admission ticket for the location you should report to for check-in. UMC's Testing Center is located on the 2nd floor of UMC's Sargeant Student Center. Arrive early if you are not familiar with the campus. Late arrivals will not be admitted once testing has started.


The closest parking lot to the Testing Center is Parking Lot A. (See section i-5 on the Campus Map for assistance.)


Tests will not be cancelled due to weather. Use your best judgment about whether you can safely make it to your test on time and do not take unnecessary risks. If you are unable to make it to your test, please contact the testing company directly about registering for another test date.
