ABOUT:
 
The Testing and Assessment Center offers a wide variety of services to Western students and the community. These services include Accuplacer placement testing, ACT National and ACT Residual testing, a variety of extra institutional testing (including CLEP and DSST), GED, some FAA exams, proctored exams for Western students, and proctored exams for students enrolled in courses from other institutions. For all exams we strongly encourage making an appointment. Testers with an appointment will have priority, if the testing center is at full capacity.
