The Defiance College Test Center Moved Across Campus!

The Test Center is now located in Defiance Hall in Room 011 in the basement.


For your health and safety at our test center:  

In support of your health and safety and the health and safety of our employees, we will follow recommendations from the CDC and World Health Organization for preventing the spread of COVID-19.  Therefore, we ask that candidates comply with the health and safety guidelines outlined on Pearson's COVID-19 webpage, including:  

  • To protect other candidates and staff, you will not be admitted to the test center and you should reschedule your exam online if you:  
  1. Have been diagnosed with COVID-19 
  2. Have had any flu-like symptoms in the last fourteen days, including fever, chills, a cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath
  3. Are currently under fourteen days’ home quarantine or centralized observation demanded by government and healthcare authorities
  4. Defiance College requires you to take your temperature before you leave your home and if it is 100.4 or above, please reschedule your appointment.
  • You will be asked to acknowledge that you meet the above health requirements and that you will follow health and safety guidelines while testing. 
  • Stay > 6 feet away from other people in the waiting area and during the admissions process.
  • Please cover your nose and mouth in case of sneezing or coughing.
  • Defiance College is requiring all candidates to wear a face mask. Candidates are responsible for providing their own face masks. Face masks are allowed during testing, but candidates must briefly remove them to take the required candidate photo at check-in.
  • Candidates may bring and utilize their own hand sanitizer. Administrators will inspect any sanitizer provided by the candidate before and after the exam. 
  • We are allowing candidates to wear disposable gloves during testing. Test administrators will inspect the gloves both before and after the exam, and the gloves will be disposed of in front of the proctor upon completion of the test.
  • Only the testing candidate is allowed in the building.

Health and safety measures at Defiance College test center:

  • Increase our cleaning and disinfecting regimens in between all testing appointments
  • Provide tissues to candidates upon arrival at the test center
  • Ensure candidates wear a mask during testing check-in and check-out (candidate responsible for providing masks) 
  • Permit candidates to wear disposable gloves if they choose.
