Other Testing


Pellissippi State Community College's Testing Center at the Pellissippi Campus on Hardin Valley Road can act as a proctor site for students taking classes online from other schools. We also give CLEP and DSST tests. If you need information about taking a proctored test for RODP, please see our RODP page.

Our proctor fees and policies have changed. We now charge a flat fee of $25 for correspondence testing regardless of the test's length. We have also changed our CLEP/DSST proctor fee to $20. Proctor fees must be paid in advance at our office or over the phone. We cannot take proctor fees on Saturdays or after office hours. If you have any questions, please contact our office.

Correspondence Testing

We are happy to proctor exams for other schools. We charge a proctor fee of $25, applicable to all tests regardless of length, payable in advance. Please visit or call our office at 865-694-6454 to pay your proctor fee. We can accept checks, money orders, and debit/credit cards, but we cannot accept cash.

To arrange for testing, please contact your school or instructor and let them know you have found a proctor site. If you need us to fill out an information form for your school, please call us at 865-694-6454. Once your school has sent your test to us, you can come to test whenever we are open. You do not need an appointment.

Please make sure you are familiar with our Testing Policies before you come in to test. Students testing for outside schools must follow the same policies as Pellissippi students.

CLEP and DSST Testing

To schedule a DSST test, please call our office at 865-694-6454. You must call at least one day before you want to test. To schedule a CLEP test, you need to login to the CLEP My Account Portal and register and pay for the test online, then call our office at 865-694-6454 to make an exam appointment. For more information, you can visit the CLEP site. We give CLEP tests at the Hardin Valley and Blount County campuses. We give DSST tests at all campuses.

Pellissippi State Community College accepts certain CLEP and DSST tests for college credit. To find out more information, please call our office. If you want to test for credit at another school, please call your school's Admissions office to make certain you take the correct CLEP or DSST. Not all schools accept the same tests for the same classes. We will give you the exam you request, but we cannot be responsible if you request the wrong one.

In addition to the CLEP or DSST exam fee, we charge a $20 proctor fee per test, payable in advance. We can accept checks, money orders, and debit/credit cards, but we cannot accept cash.

Please make sure you are familiar with our Testing Policies before you come in to test. Students taking CLEP or DSST tests must follow the same policies as Pellissippi students.
