Class & Placement Testing

The Urbana University Library/Learning Commons offers testing services for students needing to take make up and accommodations tests.  We also administer placement exams to incoming students.

Testing Information

Class Testing

Class testing is the most common service provided by the testing center and includes make-up tests due to athletic events or other reasons and accommodations testing (extended time, distraction-reduced space, etc.). You must register through the Office of Disability Services before scheduling an exam with accommodations. Students must take their tests prior to their instructor's assigned deadline and during our testing hours of operation. As with all testing, photo ID is required and no personal belongings (bags, cellphones, etc.) are allowed in the testing room. 

Students need to make an appointment to take out-of-class exams using the online booking system link below.

Placement Testing

Placement exams are designed and used to determine the best fit for students as they begin Urbana courses. Your admissions advisor will notify you about placement exams that are required before enrollment. Please contact

Placement testing is offered at the library on Urbana's campus for Urbana and Franklin students. The Urbana University Library is closed until further notice because of the Coronavirus threat.  Students needing to take placement testing should contact UU Admissions at
