National Paper-Based Testing Service

National Paper-Based Tests are those for which you pre-register with a national organization, and which are given on paper instead of computer.  Generally these tests are used for college entrance or professional certification.

The registration packets for some of the more common college entrance tests that fall into this category are located in the lobby of the Testing Center, but it is often possible to simply register on a particular test's website.  For professional certification tests, you can generally obtain registration information from your employer or your professional association.

Test dates vary per test.  Most are offered one or more times during the year on a Saturday morning.  Plan to register early.  Most tests have a registration deadline.


National Paper-Based tests are administered in different buildings on campus.  Once you have registered for a test and have received your confirmation letter, your admission ticket will list the name of the building to which you have been assigned.


Testing is generally conducted on Saturday mornings.  Check the registration bulletin of your particular test for exact times and dates.
