Welcome to the University Testing Center (UTC) at NC Central University. The UTC was established in 1987 under the Division of Academic Affairs. The Testing Center is nationally certified by the National College Testing Association, and NC Central is the first HBCU in North Carolina to receive such a distinction. In addition, we are the second four-year public institution in NC to become certified. The NCCU Testing Center is a premier facility that ensures integrity and exam security in the proctoring and examination processes.
University Testing Services offers many programs and services to the North Carolina Central University and local communities, including the following:
- Computerized Placement Tests (ACCUPLACER)
- Computer-based interest and personality assessments
- Web-based testing
- Scanning and scoring test documents, surveys, and questionnaires for faculty and regional secondary and post-secondary institutions.
Online/Distance Education Proctoring Services
Students taking classes or training through other colleges and institutions by correspondence or other long-distance methods often are required to take exams. The University Testing Center agrees to provide supervision and a secure testing environment for those exams. Usually, this involves a correspondence or online class through a university, but various types of organizations make use of this service. The Testing Office has proctored exams for institutions around the country and welcomes international organizations as well.
Written (paper) exams and online exams are the most common exams proctored, but with advance notice, almost any type of exam can be accommodated.
The fee for proctoring services is $30 per test. The Testing Center accepts checks and credit and debit card payments.
Babies and children are not permitted into the exam rooms at any time. They must be supervised outside the Testing Office. Testing staff will not provide child supervision for any reason.
During severe weather or natural disasters, people may be prevented from entering or leaving campus facilities for hours or days. Notice of a decision to close or delay opening NCCU will be communicated as quickly as possible by email, phone trees, local radio, and television stations.
Call (919) 530-7220 to hear a recorded message about University closings or delayed openings. Do not call the University Police, Facilities Services, or radio and television stations. When severe winter weather conditions are predicted, monitor weather reports closely. Information will be made available from NCCU's information line at (919) 530-7220.
If you need to reschedule your test due to adverse weather, please contact your individual testing administrator.
