DELO Testing Centers: General Testing Guidelines
Reserved Testing Appointments
The instructor will determine the testing window for each exam. You will not be allowed to schedule outside of the specified exam window without prior approval from your professor. The professor will need to email the approval to the DELO Testing Centers email: firstname.lastname@example.org submit a testing exception form.
The time you reserve for an exam is the time that the exam starts. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late for a reserved appointment and the testing center is full, you will be directed to the office to reschedule. You will not be given an extension of time if you start the exam late and it is near close of business for the day. If you do not have the maximum allotted time to complete an exam upon arrival to the testing center, yet you still want to complete your exam, you will be required to sign A Waiver of Time form.
Parking at WKU is a challenge. You will need to give yourself plenty of time to get a visitor parking pass and find a parking spot.

Arrival: Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the testing check-in process.
Identification: You must show current photo identification before you will be allowed to take an exam at either testing location. Valid forms of identification are: WKU Student ID, state-issued driver’s license, passport, or other government issued photo identification. If you present identification that is expired, difficult to read, or damaged, you will be asked for a second form of valid identification. If you cannot present a second form of identification, you will not be allowed to test and will have to reschedule.
Memorandum of Understanding: During the check-in process, you will be required to complete a memorandum of understanding which details the DELO Testing Centers examination procedures and the materials allowed will be verbally relayed to the tester via the proctor on duty.
Please read over the Memorandum of Understanding carefully. Click here for a sample.

No food or drink of any kind will be allowed inside the testing room.
You may not use books, notes, calculators, or other aids when taking your exam unless your instructor has given permission to the DELO Testing Centers staff that such items are allowed during your exam. Instructors supply this information in advance of your testing dates.
Proctors in the testing centers will monitor you during your exam. Monitoring includes walking through the room and observing, reviewing from the cameras that are in use inside the testing room, and observing computer activity via NetOp Vision Pro.
How does the DELO Testing Centers define a testing infraction?
A tester breaches the general testing guidelines defined within the DELO Testing Centers Memorandum of Understanding or the specific exam instructions provided by the tester’s instructor for a specific exam.
If you are caught committing a testing infraction on an exam, the proctor will report the incident to the DELO Testing Centers supervisor on duty and will write an incident report which will be given to your instructor. The faculty member will then take appropriate action which may include a failing grade "F" on the exam or a failing grade "F" in the course. Additional actions which may be taken involve probation, suspension or expulsion from the university as deemed by the Offices of Student Life and Judicial Affairs.
