Testing Center Services

STUDENT DISABILITY SERVICES 

Alternative testing is a common accommodation as many disabilities impact testing. We do provide testing in the Testing Center for students registered with a disability and who are entitled to testing accommodations. Many students elect to take their tests in the Testing Center as it is distraction-reduced. However, students must have registered with our office for the semester in which they are using our accommodations and have given us at least three business days notice. This notice allows us the time necessary to contact the student's professor and arrange to have a copy of the exam on the day and time it is due. Not all tests and quizzes may require a trip to our office, and scheduling them remains the student's responsibility. If the student or the student's professor has any questions regarding testing accommodations, please contact our office at ace.testing@ut.edu or (813) 257-5757.

DISTANCE LEARNING TESTING

Academic Excellence Programs offers Distance Learning exam proctoring services by appointment. You should contact your home institution for procedures you may need to follow to set up test proctoring services at UT. We do charge a proctoring fee of $20 per hour payable by cash or check at the conclusion of the exam. You must also provide picture ID to the test proctor. To schedule an appointment to take an exam for another institution at our facility, please contact our test proctor at ace.testing@ut.edu or (813) 257-5757.

CLEP TESTING

Students can receive college credit by earning qualifying scores on one or more of the CLEP examinations UT accepts. More than 2,900 colleges and universities in the United States will recognize your comprehensive subject knowledge acquired through independent or prior study, cultural pursuits, special interests, internships or professional development. Each CLEP exam can earn three to six college credits (more for foreign languages).

The cost of each CLEP exam is $80, in addition to a $15 institutional fee, which is a fraction of the tuition for the corresponding course, payable to The University of Tampa. To take an exam, you must contact the Academic Center for Excellence to make an appointment in advance. You must also create an account at www.collegeboard.com to register for the exam you wish to take and pay the $80 CLEP fee. When you come in for your testing appointment, you must bring your printed registration ticket you received when registering through the College Board, a valid picture ID with a signature (NOT a student ID), as well as the $15 institutional fee payable by cash, check or money order. For more information about CLEP credits or to schedule an exam, please contact ace.testing@ut.edu or (813) 257-5757
