Testing CenterMission Statement
The Testing Center provides high-quality, comprehensive assessment services to facilitate the relationship between assessment, academic success, and retention. Additionally, the Testing Center is committed to measuring the impact of those services on student learning for a diverse population of FCC students, faculty, and the Frederick community.
If you are a current student, chances are you took a placement test in the Testing Center. This is also where you take any make-up tests arranged by your instructor. If you are in the distance-learning program, you will also come to the Testing Center to take all proctored exams on campus. We are located in the Library Building, Room L104.
The Testing Center offers proctoring services for all distance-learning courses from other colleges, as well as professional certification exam proctoring and test proctoring services for local employers. FCC is also an open testing site for College Level Exam (CLEP) and DSST exams. CLEP and DSST exams are done by appointment only. Please call the Testing Center at 301.846.2522 for further details on proctoring services available.
Please Note: Some proctored exams offered at the Testing Center require that students pay proctoring and other associated fees. When you set up an appointment to take your exam, our staff will advise you of any charges. Payment is required prior to taking an exam. Please note that if you pay in cash, our staff will accept it but that no change can be given. You will need to contact the student accounts office in order to be refunded for a cash payment.
Students are required to have a picture ID to take a placement test, make-up exam or proctoring of external exams in the Testing Center.
