Testing Center

Consistent with our institutional values of integrity, inquiry, collaboration, service and humility, the mission of the Belmont University Testing Center is to support students and faculty in the assessment of student knowledge.  The Testing Center, available on-campus and online, is a secure environment available to students who need additional time, minimal distractions, or other University approved accommodations.  The Testing Center is also available for students who have an excused absence for an exam that they would have otherwise taken in their typical classroom setting.  

For Spring 2021, the Belmont University Testing Center is in operation beginning February 1 for in-person and remote (Blackboard) exam sessions.  Available times for appointments are Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3-6pm and Fridays from 9am-12:30pm.

Proctoring Policies

  • Students must present their Belmont student ID at check-in. The proctor will verify the student’s ID and take a picture of test taker with the ID to send to the professor. (If the exam is being proctored via Zoom, they will take a screenshot of the online test taker with their ID.) This is to document that exams are administered to the intended student and to protect all parties involved.
  • Students must leave backpacks or other bags at the front of the room with the proctor. Phones must remain in backpacks/bags or be left with the proctor during the duration of the exam.
  • The proctor will strictly adhere to time allotments in the confirmation email. Students should arrange to arrive on time as proctors are not required to stay beyond the agreed upon appointment time, and the test will end as scheduled.
  • Students may take bathroom breaks (without phones). Testing time does not pause during such breaks.
  • The proctor will note any abnormalities with the testing process and communicate those to the professor (e.g., internet disruption, academic integrity concerns, late arrival, etc.).
