The Testing Center at Saint Paul College provides a professional and welcoming environment for students to take tests. The Testing Center offers a range of proctoring services including:
- Make-up Testing for Saint Paul College Courses

All students are responsible for arriving in time to complete their test before the Testing Center closes. The Testing Center asks students to arrive at least 90 minutes before closing.
Saint Paul College offers proctoring service for make-up exams. Instructors must submit the
Proctoring Request Form to the Testing Center at least 24 hours before a student arrives to test. Students should be in touch with their instructors on testing deadlines and restrictions. All make-up tests must be completed in a single sitting before the Testing Center closes.
ACCUPLACER Placement Testing
We are currently offering ACCUPLACER tests in math only. Please see the
Placement/Assessment page for the current placement and assessment process.
Students who take the ACCUPLACER math test will begin with the Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics test (QAS). Students will then be routed to either the Arithmetic test or the Advanced Algebra and Functions test based on the QAS results.
Test of Essential Academic Skills
TEAS is only available at Saint Paul College for Saint Paul College students and prospective students who have applied to a Saint Paul College program that requires the TEAS. Additional information is available on the
Saint Paul College TEAS site. Students must create an ATI account at
www.atitesting.com to purchase and schedule an exam.
Proctoring Services for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities
All proctoring services for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities are currently suspended until further notice.
The Testing Center offers licensure and credential testing for some Saint Paul College programs. Saint Paul College instructors who are interested in sponsoring a credential or licensure exam through the Testing Center should contact the Testing Center with information on the proposed exam.
