The Assessment Center provides an area for IVCC students to take their exams if needing accommodations (as determined by the IVCC Center for Accessibility and Neurodiversity (CAN) office), or have missed an exam that was given in class. Certain online and blended courses also utilize the Assessment Center to have exams proctored.
Appointments are required for all IVCC placement testing and IVCC online, blended and telecourse exams.
