Testing Center

The Testing Center provides accessible and secure testing facilities for students and the community. College course exams do not require an appointment. However, most other exams (correspondence, exit, HiSET, HESI, etc.) do require an appointment and may require a test fee.

To register for the CLEP, DSST, CERTIPORT, or HESI exam, visit https://www.registerblast.com/pstcc. You may also schedule your exam and pay your fee during this time.

The Testing Center’s hours may vary by campus. The Testing Center is closed when the college is, including for holidays and for weather- or emergency-related closures and delays.


Exit Testing

All Tennessee community college graduates are required to take an exit exam called the ETS Profile, or EPP. When you meet with your advisor in your next-to-last or last semester about graduation requirements, your advisor will register you for the exit exam.


Other Examinations

From the high school equivalency test (HiSET) to correspondence testing and credit-by-examinations like CLEP and DSST, the Testing Center is your one-stop shop for all other examinations.

 

Testing Center Policies & Procedures

To keep your test secure and to maintain confidentiality, the Testing Center has procedures and policies that regulate your behavior in the Testing Center. Any student who takes a test in the Testing Center — whether or not he or she is a Pellissippi State student — must comply with these regulations.
