On-campus Testing Services

Jefferson College offers a Testing Center that typically provides the testing for students enrolled in online courses. The Testing Center is located on the south side of the Library building on the Hillsboro campus. The Arnold location provides testing services through the Learning Center located on the third floor of the building.   The Northwest location provides services in Room 127.

The examination process for online courses is typically explained in the orientation materials provided for each specific course.  Students are given a copy of the Testing Center's hours and are informed about the specifics regarding the examination schedule for their particular course.       

Students taking their examinations in the Testing Center will be required to present a picture I.D. with their signature for proof of identification.  

Online Testing
Some courses may provide an online testing component in which a student can complete the entire testing process online. Please refer to the instructor and the course syllabus for specific guidelines concerning online testing.  

Testing Services (approved off- campus)
Certain courses may provide for off-campus testing services in which a student is permitted to take examinations at an approved off-campus testing center site. The student should consult with the instructor of the course and the course syllabus for specific details. In this situation, the student would follow the hours of operation and testing schedule of the off-campus testing center. 

Orientation Sessions
All online courses have an orientation component that provides students with an overview of the course, a course syllabus or outline, and an opportunity for faculty to explain the course requirements in greater detail.

Orientations may be provided online or held by the instructor on campus and are an important element of all online courses. Students will have an opportunity to meet their instructor and have their questions answered regarding specific course information, whether online or in person.

For courses having an on-campus orientation session, attendance is usually optional.  Orientation times can be found in the course descriptions.  Alternative arrangements for orientations held on campus must be approved by the course instructor.
