Make-Up Testing

Our Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Inver Hills Community College Testing and Certification Center to provide high quality testing, test scoring, and instructional assessment services which ascribe to the National College Testing Association Professional Standards and Guidelines. The services provided for student, faculty, staff, campus, community, and business partners will be consistently rendered with an attitude of service that demonstrates value in human relationships, personal excellence, human dignity, diversity, and commitment to lifelong learning.


If you wish to take a make-up test in the Testing Center, you must make arrangements with your instructor in advance and have the test sent to the center. If you need special accommodations, e.g., a reader, scriber or extra time, please contact Disability Services at 651-450-3628.

If you are a current student who needs to take a faculty-approved quiz/test shorter than 2 hours in duration and need to begin after the listed 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 10 a.m. "start" times listed to the left, please call the testing center at 651-450-3650 or email
