The Testing Center at Governors State University offers seating for individual student course examinations at professor request.

If an exam or quiz needs to be made up, a student needs to take a retest, a professor has a group testing request, or special accommodations need to be made, instructors have the option of using The Testing Center at GSU. Testing can be done at the Testing Center or virtually using Proctor 360.  Currently, the Testing Center is operating at a reduced capacity and appointments are required.  No walk-in appointments will be accepted at this time. Due to COVID-19 safety regulations, all persons entering the GMT Building, where the Testing Center is located, must be wearing a face mask.
