Student Frequently Asked Questions

At this time, we only offer make-up exams for currently-enrolled Cal Poly Pomona students.

Since the proctor cannot leave the room once the exam begins, we cannot accommodate late arrivals. If you are unable to attend the appointment at the scheduled time, notify your instructor to submit a new Faculty Request Form.

Email testingservices@cpp.edu. If the request to reschedule is within the timeframe indicated by your instructor on the Faculty Request Form, and there is availability, Testing Services will accommodate your request to reschedule. You will receive an email confirmation from CPP Connect with the new day/time. If you do not show to your scheduled appointment or your rescheduling request cannot be accommodated, you will need your faculty to submit a new Faculty Request Form.

The process begins with your instructor. Your instructor must submit a Faculty Request Form. After the form is received and processed, the student will receive an email with appointment availability. Please keep in mind that appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Reply promptly to ensure you meet your instructor's deadline.

Testing Services currently proctors make-up exams for courses only. Please inquire with the respective academic departments directly regarding these other exams.

  • CCE - Contact the Political Science Department.
  • GWT - This test has been suspended.
  • PCPT - Contact the Computer Information Systems Department.

Faculty Frequently Asked Questions

Faculty indicate on the Faculty Request Form if they want the completed exam materials scanned to PDF and emailed (within 1 business day), or if they will collect the physical exam materials from the Learning Resource Center (Library, 15-2921). Faculty must show ID to pick up exams. Exams will be shredded after the appropriate grade appeal date for each term.

For scheduling purposes, Faculty Request Forms must be received at least 24 hours in advance of completion date and time. After you submit your request for an exam, we will do our best to accommodate your students as quickly as possible.

Seating is limited and appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please make your students aware of your testing expectations and to check their email frequently for the appointment invite from testingservices@cpp.edu and any updates. We may not be able to accommodate same-day requests due to capacity and proctor availability.

Testing Services cannot provide technical assistance, equipment (laptops at this time), or help with installing any specialized software for purposes of taking exams. Student personal laptops are encouraged for use in these situations.

Faculty are also encouraged to clearly communicate all technical requirements on the Faculty Request Form and with students prior to them sitting for proctored exams. This includes what software needs to be installed and whether Apple or Windows PCs are preferred.

The materials (PDF) must be attached to the Faculty Request Form submitted. You may also contact testingservices@cpp.edu for additional assistance.

You may email testingservices@cpp.edu with the updated exam or instructions.

No, the proctors will not grade the exams. Please DO NOT send any answer keys. All test materials submitted in the Faculty Request Form will be printed and provided to the student during their appointment.
