Welcome to the Academic Testing Center

The Academic Testing Center (ATC) is a free service for students currently enrolled at the University of Rhode Island. We administer paper-based examinations for students taking on campus courses, who need to complete make-up exams and for students with approved accommodations through Disability Services. 

Information, policies, and procedures can be found on the For Faculty and For Students pages.

The mission of the University of Rhode Island Academic Testing Center is to support faculty and students through the administration of course examinations, including midterms and finals, in a dedicated testing facility.  

We endeavor to achieve this mission by:

  • Providing a quiet, proctored testing facility
  • Promoting academic integrity
  • Collaborating with Disability Student Services, Advising Programs for Student Athletics, and other campus offices
  • Providing superior customer service
  • Using the Professional Standards and Guidelines of the National College Testing Association as a guide to inform policies and procedures
