Reservation Request Form: To request a reservation in the Sage Hall Testing Center, please click here and log in with your EUID and password. Though priority is generally given on a first-come/first-served basis there are also some basic priorities as follows:

  1. Large classes (traditional lecture and online-only) that are not likely to have viable alternative testing venues are given top priority.
  2. Blended classes without good alternative testing venues are given second priority.
  3. Testing needs, such as placement, START, TRIO, etc., that contribute to the university goal of providing a superior undergraduate education - especially to historically disadvantaged groups - will be given priority especially during summer orientation sessions.
  4. Smaller classes that can test concurrently in the center with other smaller classes will be accommodated as feasible; it is understood that these classes may be able to test online in alternative smaller venues on campus or via mobile testing services.

NOTE: All faculty and departments interested in utilizing the center are strongly encouraged to to fill out a reservation request form and consult with appropriate Academic Technologies Testing Services personnel; we will try to accommodate as many needs as feasible and possible. Users should carefully specify on their reservations what technologies, applications, and features are required for their testing session(s).

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED: Set an appointment prior to your testing time to check your requested computer configurations.

All faculty and departments using the Sage Hall Testing Center are expected to consult the Registrar's Office in order to effectively follow all rules and guidelines regarding scheduling and announcing testing dates, places and times in their syllabi and catalog publications.
