Testing and Assessment Center Mission Statement
The mission of the South Florida State College Testing and Assessment Center is to provide comprehensive, quality testing and assessment services to students, candidates, faculty, staff, the community, and business partners. The Center upholds the College’s vision of enriching our communities through education, one life at a time.

Some tests are not offered at every college location. Tests must be scheduled at least 24 to 48 hours in advance.
When scheduling your exam, ask about the type of photo I.D. you will be required to present as this varies depending on the exam being taken. If you do not present an acceptable photo I.D. on your testing date, your exam will be rescheduled until you can acquire the required form of I.D.
If you have a documented disability and need accommodations to take your test, make arrangements by contacting the disabilities specialist, located in the Advising and Counseling Center, Room B-152, before your testing appointment.
Only testing candidates are allowed in the testing center. Children and guests are not allowed, and they may not be left unattended outside the testing center or at any other area of the College during testing.
Electronic devices and personal items are not allowed in the examination area. These are stored in a secure locker while you take your test.
Due to possible varied temperatures in testing rooms, it is recommended that you dress in layers to avoid feeling too hot or too cold during a test.
