Testing Center

Important COVID-19 Update

To help contain the potential spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of candidates and our staff, the University of Houston-Clear Lake Testing Center site will remain closed until further notice.  However, as the option to proctor tests remotely is becoming available, we are ready to provide this service to our students and community.

NEW! Remote Proctored Tests

There are two remote proctoring options, depending on the test desired: direct remote proctoring (proctored by UHCL Testing Center staff via TEAMS) and intermediary proctoring (proctored by a third party such as ProctorU, Examity, etc). Currently the tests that permit direct remote proctoring are TSI and some Non-university Proctoring. We expect Advanced Math Placement Testing (AMPT) to become available at the end of April.

Scheduling Remote Proctored Tests

For any direct remote proctoring you will need the following:

  • Desktop computer or laptop (tablets, Chromebooks and cell phones do not meet our requirements)
  • Functional built-in or external webcam and microphone – test them
  • Internet speed must be at least 2 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload. Hot spots are not recommended.
  • Chrome browser with pop-up blocker disabled
  • TEAMS app – download here
  • Go to Accuplacer.org to verify the system compatibility

To schedule a TSI please go to the Schedule an Exam page.

To schedule a Non-university remote proctored test please obtain the approval of your institution, and verify that the above technical requirements are met prior to scheduling. To schedule a non-university remote proctoring session please go to the Schedule an Exam page.
