IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Proper ID:  Make sure you know what to bring to the Testing Center on the day of the exam.  Be especially aware of identification requirements.  All tests require a picture ID, but a few require two forms of ID.  Improper ID will keep you from testing.  Also make sure that you do not bring prohibited materials.  Bringing these could invalidate your test scores.

 

Dress comfortably:  Wear layered clothing.  Temperatures that are comfortable to some examinees may not be comfortable for you.  You do not want to be distracted by the temperature in the testing room.

 

Inclement Weather:  If ANC is closed due to inclement weather, testing will be cancelled or postponed.  If you are scheduled for an exam on a date when inclement weather is predicted or has occurred, please check the ANC website for information on closings.  If we must postpone or are unable to test, we will e-mail you the next working day to reschedule your appointment.

 

Availability:  Each test session has limited seating, therefore, students are encouraged to register early and not wait until the last minute.  This provides optimal testing conditions and a distraction-free, secure testing environment.
