Testing is an integral part of starting at Florida Gateway College. It is our mission to provide accessible, comprehensive testing services to Florida Gateway College students and the surrounding community. The Test Center maintains and adheres to all standards and guidelines set forth by the National College Testing Association (NCTA).
Testing services are available to assist students throughout their pursuit of higher education at Florida Gateway College and beyond. The Test Center administers all exams by appointment only. Walk-in exams or same-day appointments are not recommended and will only be considered for current students needing to make up exams.
A valid Government ID is required for all testing in the Test Center. Dual enrollment students without a Government ID or Student ID from their high school should have their school fill out an Alternate ID Form (see below).
The Test Center is located in the Hall Student Center, behind the security office. Look for the signs in the hallway.
