Student Accessibility 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 email@example.com or (813) 257-3743.
Distance Learning Testing
Academic Excellence Programs offers distance learning exam proctoring services, when available, by appointment. Availability for distance learning exams is not guaranteed, as seating is limited and University of Tampa students are given seating priority in the testing center. Distance learning proctoring is at the discretion of the testing center coordinator and based on proctor/schedule availability. 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.
*UT is not offering proctoring services for distance learning exams at this time.*
UT 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). Currently, the UT Testing Center is only able to accommodate CLEP exams for UT students.
The cost of each CLEP exam is $89, 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 testing center to make an appointment in advance. CLEP proctoring is offered on a limited basis and is at the discretion of the testing center coordinator. You must also create an account at www.collegeboard.org to register for the exam you wish to take and pay the $87 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (813) 257-3743.
All CLEP testing must be scheduled for a 2-hour time block Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m.—4:30 p.m.
