Testing Center

Testing Services for Make-Up Tests

We monitor make-up tests if you have missed an in-class exam, test, or quiz. We serve all Sierra College students and provide accommodations for students with disabilities.

If you need to take an assessment test, visit Assessment.

What You Need to Take a Make-Up Test

To take a make-up exam at the Testing Center, you must:

  • Have your instructor make arrangements with the Testing Center and fill out the Testing Center Proctor Form. Only your instructor can order a make-up test from the Testing Center. The Nevada County Campus (NCC) also requires the NCC LRC Testing Instructions Form.
  • Bring a valid photo ID.
  • If you need accommodations, please bring your Accommodations Certification from DSPS to the Testing Center. Accommodations includes: extended time, student scribes, and assistive technology.
  • If you need a private room, we recommend making an appointment at least three days before your test.

What to Expect During Your Make-Up Test


  • Present a valid photo ID.
  • Go to an assigned testing station or a private room.
  • Turn off your electronic devices and store all backpacks, purses, and cell phones inside of pull-string bags.
  • Faculty and staff will observe the testing lab from surveillance cameras and the window viewing area.
  • Do not cheat. We will report academic dishonesty to your instructor.
