The University Testing Center (UTC) opens today and begins to offer accommodated testing services to the SMU community.
Today begins a three-phased opening of the center. In phase one, most accommodated testing – for students with testing accommodations approved by Disability Accommodations & Success Strategies (DASS) – will be proctored by the center. Accommodated testing will be conducted by the UTC as a backup to instructors and academic departments. The test proctoring process and reservations of testing seats remain the same within DASS Link.
In spring 2023, phase two will pilot the expansion of services to student athletes during their sport’s competition season.
Depending on space usage and demand, the final phase will be to add placement testing and evaluation services. A handful of other campus test proctoring services will remain operational and resources to instructors. Learn more about the new testing center, eligibility for testing, policies, and booking processes at smu.edu/testing.
