To take an exam at the SFSC Testing and Assessment Center, a valid photo ID is required; ID requirements do vary depending on the type of test. When you schedule your test, be sure to inquire about the acceptable forms of ID for your particular exam. If you do not present a valid and acceptable photo ID on test day, you will be asked to reschedule your exam for a time when you can produce a valid and acceptable ID. All electronic devices and personal items are prohibited while in the center and will be stored in a secure locker prior to and during testing.

If you have a disability and need accommodations to take your test, contact the college’s disabilities specialist before your testing appointment. 

Testing candidates are the only ones allowed in the Testing Center; this includes children and guests of the testing candidate. Children are not allowed to be unattended outside of the Testing Center or any other area of the college during testing.
