General Information

The Testing Center supports students throughout the higher education pipeline. We administer the SAT and ACT for high school students. Undergraduates can take a variety of graduate and professional school entrance exams such as the GMAT, LSAT and Subjects GRE (visit National Tests Administered at U of I for more information). Alumni and other professionals in the region may take licensing and certification exams important to their career goals.

The Center provides opportunities for students and the general public to display their mastery and synthesis of knowledge for both academic and professional purposes. Through our Prometric and Pearson VUE labs we provide a wide range of high-stake licensing and college entrance exams such as: GMAT, GRE, MCAT, DAT, TOEFL, etc. Registrations for all exams are scheduled by the owner of the test and not the Testing Center. Visit,, or other test owner sites to register.

In addition, the Testing Center offers individual proctoring services for students in distant education courses and to employers wishing to administer tests in a highly secure environment.
