Testing Services

The Academic Skills Center (ASC) offers various testing services. Due to the importance of testing, click each type below and carefully read the information. Students with questions are encouraged to contact ASC in advance for clarification prior to arrival at the Academic Skills Center for testing.

The Academic Skills Center provides proctoring of make-up tests for individual students registered in JCC’s classes. Proctoring is provided for both hardcopy and online testing. The Academic Skills Center does not proctor for entire classes but serves as a make-up testing site.

  • Students must present a state-issued photo ID or JCC ID card to begin testing.
  • Tests are not graded by the Academic Skills Center staff. Students should contact their instructor for test scores.
  • Students who are registered with JCC’s Accessibility Services are proctored through that department, not the Academic Skills Center.
  • Make-up testing is not required by Johnston Community College or advised by the Academic Skills Center. The allowance of make-up testing is at the sole discretion of the instructor.

The Academic Skills Center provides test proctoring for students enrolled at other colleges/universities.

If a student from another college or university wishes to test at Johnston Community College, he or she should contact the Academic Skills Center at (919)209-2118. The process often requires 2-3 weeks of correspondence, so students are encouraged to begin the process early to meet their testing deadline.

Scheduling Test Proctoring

  1. Students should confirm their home institution will allow JCC to proctor a test. This often requires a form(s). 
  2. Students should confirm with their home institution and/or instructor that testing will not require JCC to download any computer programs as it is the College's policy not to allow software on campus computers other than those approved and installed by the IT department.
  3. Once students confirm that JCC will be allowed to proctor a test, students should contact the Academic Skills Center to ensure availability of this service on the proposed testing day/time.
  4. Students seeking Accessibility Services accommodations must have those approvals through their home institution and should confirm with the Academic Skills Center prior to scheduling proctored exams that the Center can indeed provide the accommodation

For hardcopy mailed testing: Once the Center's availability is confirmed, students should contact their home institution requesting the test and materials be sent to Dr. Cara McConnell via US mail or email. Students should contact Dr. McConnell to ensure the test and materials have arrived. If the materials have arrived, the student and Dr. McConnell will schedule a testing day/time.

For online testing:Students should receive a confirmation email from the Academic Skills Center before arriving for a proctored test.Not receiving an email confirmation indicates the Center does not have all the necessary materials from the instructor or student.
