                                                                                Testing in TLC
Q:  I need to take a test for my online class. What do I need to do?
A:  Students who are enrolled in online/hybrid classes at COC need to make prior arrangements to take exams in TLC at the Valencia campus by making an appointment (click here) well in advance of their testing date. It is strongly encouraged that students make arrangements to take their exam as soon as possible to ensure a guaranteed appointment time; when no additional appointment times are available or if students arrive late to their scheduled appointment time, they will be placed on a waitlist and may not be able to take their exam until space becomes available. Because students have a scheduled appointment, they should take travel time and parking limitations into consideration, ensuring their on- time arrival. Once students have arrived for their exam appointment, they should be prepared to provide a government issued identification and to leave all personal belongings in lockers at the testing reception area; only testing materials specified by the instructor will be allowed into the testing facility. Please see TLC testing information page for additional information.  If you have further questions, email or call 661-362-3194.   
Q:  Can I take my test at CCC?
A:  The CCC Testing room is open for make-up exams and DSPS students Monday through Thursday from 9am-6pm during Spring and Fall ONLY.  Exams for online classes cannot be accommodated at CCC. Please see TLC testing information page.
Q:  Can I take my test at another location?
A:  If you wish to have your COC exam proctored at another institution, please allow 7-10 business days for processing of arrangements. It is the student's responsibility to find a proctor and provide COC staff with the name, organization, phone, fax, and email address of the proposed proctor. Please call 661-362-3194 or email to begin the process. Due to time constraints, it is highly advisable that students make every effort to take their exams at the Valencia campus. Please see TLC testing information page for additional information.
