Triton Testing 1-2-3 Guide

Step 1: Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled testing time.

Our check-in desk is located in Pepper Canyon Hall room 364. By arriving 15 minutes before your testing appointment, you’ll ensure that you can begin your test on time and take advantage of every last minute, should you need it.

Step 2: Be prepared to store everything in our secure storage area.

You’re only allowed to take writing utensils and study aids explicitly authorized by your instructor into our testing rooms. Be prepared to leave your cell phone, backpack, watch, or other items in our secure storage area located next to the check–in desk.

Step 3: Know our policies ahead of time.

You’ll feel more at ease before taking your test if you know what to expect. Take a few minutes to read about our policies below so your testing day can be as smooth as possible!

The following policies are in effect at the Triton Testing Center (TTC). Should you have an accommodation on file with the Office for Students with Disabilities that contradicts one of these policies, TTC will discuss this with you during the check-in process.
