Testing Center


You asked, we listened! The UHCL Testing Center is creating two new testing spaces to provide space for all UHCL students to take their course completion certification tests on site.

While the construction takes place the Center will be open for remote TSI/AMPT/Certiport/non-university proctoring testing. We will reopen once the conversion is complete, in February 2021 with three testing labs ready to receive our students and community.

The Center will be open for on site testing December 1-8, and will switch to remote testing on Dec 11, 2020.
