Frequently Asked Questions For Students

Why would I need to take a test in the Triton Testing Center (TTC)?

Typically students come to the TTC to take their accommodated or make-up test. You will be informed by your course instructor and/or your academic department if you will be taking your test(s) with us.

How far in advance do I need to schedule my test?

You should schedule your test at least 3 days in advance.

How can I schedule to take a test at the TTC?

If you haven’t already done so this quarter, please fill out our student registration form. This will allow us to create or update your TTC account and send you log-in information. If you are a student with accommodations, you will need to have already received your AFA letter so you can copy and paste your accommodations into your registration form.

If you already have registered an account, click here to log in and schedule your test! Given that we have limited seat availability, you must schedule your test with us at least 3 days in advance.

Does this mean that I no longer work directly with my instructor or the academic department to take my accommodated or make-up test?

Not necessarily. You will be referred to the TTC by either your course instructor or the academic department. If you haven’t been told that you will be taking your test with the TTC, then you will not be able to register to do so.

How can I cancel my test-taking appointment?

If you know that you will not be able to take your test at the day and time you scheduled, please cancel it as soon as possible. This will allow other students to access our services. Log into your TTC account and click “Dashboard.” There, you will see an option to cancel any of your upcoming tests.

Note: You should only cancel your test-taking appointment with us if you have made alternate arrangements with your course instructor to take the test.

How do I reschedule my test?

Please email to inquire about rescheduling your test. Most rescheduling requests require approval from your instructor and rescheduling is not guaranteed.

What if I am late for my test?

If you arrive late, we cannot guarantee that you will be given your full allotted time to complete your test. If you are running late, please notify If you are more than 15 minutes late, your test-taking appointment is subject to cancellation. NOTE: if your test-taking appointment is canceled, it will be up to your course instructor if you can make-up the missed test

Will there be a proctor in the testing room? Are there cameras?

Yes. In our mission to uphold the integrity of assessments, all tests administered at the TTC will be proctored by camera or by a human proctor in the testing room.

Do you have the things I need to take my accommodated test with you?

Yes. We have reduced distraction environments, test-alone spaces, headphones, earplugs, and the resources to fulfill other typical accommodations. If we cannot provide you with your accommodations, we will let you know and you can make alternate arrangements with your course instructor or OSD liaison in the appropriate academic department.

How and where do I check in for my test?

Please come to Pepper Canyon Hall 364 with your UCSD student identification card for check-in.

What can I take into the testing room with me?

You are allowed to take writing utensils and any testing-related aids (e.g., calculator, note sheets) authorized by your professor. All other personal belongings (backpacks, mobile phones, water bottles, food/snacks, watches, or other personal items) must be stored in our secure storage area. If you need it, water can be provided to you by the TTC. 

Note: If you have an accommodation approved by the Office for Students With Disabilities that allows you to bring additional items to the testing room, you will be permitted to bring those items with you.
