Appointments are required at least 24 hours prior to testing. A current Westmoreland student identification card is required to test in the area or a current valid driver’s license can be used along with the student’s Westmoreland ID number.

Students should arrive with only their identification card, a pencil, and/or any materials that are specifically stated on the test cover sheet submitted by the instructor.

Enforcement of the Academic Dishonesty Policy will be observed by the staff. Students who have been found responsible for violating the policy may not be permitted to test in the testing room for the remainder of the academic school year.

Students wishing to take an exam at a Westmoreland education center should contact the center directly to inquire about testing policies.

Exams for Other Institutions

Tutoring & Learning Services can monitor exams for other institutions for a fee of $35 that must be paid at the time of the exam. Only check or money orders made payable to Westmoreland County Community College will be accepted. Acts of academic dishonesty will result in a forfeit of the monitoring fee and no refunds will be given.

The college cannot administer standardized exams that require extensive verbal instruction and multiple start/stop times throughout the length of the examination. Testing will be at the discretion of the college and pre approval is required. Westmoreland reserves the right to accept or decline the request to monitor an exam, and, in the event of unforeseen circumstances, to cancel a testing session.
