  6. Cancellations: If you must cancel your testing appointment, please contact University Testing Services at least one hour before your appointment. E-mail:; phone: (210) 829-3876. Repeated failure to do so may jeopardize future use of the Testing Services facilities.
  7. Clear any rescheduling changes with your instructor prior to rescheduling with University Testing Services.

 The Day of the Exam:

  1. Arrive to testing room (216 Adm. Bldg.) at least 10 minutes before your appointed time.
  2. Upon arrival, sign in (student log).
  3. Present a UIW photo ID card or a current photo ID. If you do not have a picture ID, you will not be allowed to take your exam.
  4. You can bring any materials your professor has authorized you to use during the exam.
  5. The following items are not allowed in the testing room: cell phones, backpacks, purses, personal laptops, food, beverages, textbooks, notebooks.
  6. Your personal items will be placed in a designated secure area until you finish the exam.
  7. If proctors detect any unauthorized items in your possession while testing, your exam will be confiscated, and your professor notified.
  8. If you need to use the restroom, give the test to the proctor. Upon returning, your test will be returned to you.
  9. It is highly recommended that you take a bathroom break before entering the testing room. Bathroom breaks taken during a timed exam are part of the total test time; therefore, you will have less actual time for the exam.
