Information about testing at CWC

Welcome!

Welcome to the Central Wyoming Test Center information site! Please use the tabs above to find information about specific tests at CWC.

Mission
The Central Wyoming College Test Centers' primary mission is to support excellence in CWC's academic programs through the diligent administration of placement testing for CWC programs, make-up exams for students in CWC classes, and some accommodated testing for students with disabilities.
Additionally, as a public service, the Riverton Campus Test Center contracts with several testing companies to offer certification exams and other tests through their testing systems. CWC also has informal reciprocal agreements with a number of other colleges and universities to administer tests for their students.

About Us
At the Riverton Central Wyoming College Test Center, there are eight workstations for computerized, paper-pencil, or online exams, though larger groups may be accommodated with advance notice. Each test is proctored in a quiet, secure environment. The CWC outreach offices have facilities to accommodate the testing needs for their service area.  

Hours
Monday through Friday - normal testing hours 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. (No tests begin after 4 p.m.)
Each Test Center is closed when the CWC campus is closed for certain campus wide events and for departmental meetings.

Location
The Riverton Campus Test Center is located in CWC's Main Hall, inside the library and is open to CWC staff, students and the public. Limited testing services are also available at CWC Outreach Centers in Lander, Jackson, and Dubois. Need directions? It's easy to get here.

Policies
Appointments are generally available on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not guarantee walk-in testing availability, though we accommodate walk-ins when we can. Faculty and advisors should instruct students to make appointments in advance. Appointments may be made by phone, email, or in-person. Some partner testing companies require that testers make appointments online through their websites.

All tests must end when the Test Center closes each day. Un-timed exams are time-limited by the test center's hours. Timed exams that begin too late in the day may be forced to end early. Testers choosing to test with less than the time allowed will be asked to sign a waiver.

Testers who cannot make their scheduled appointment times are requested to cancel or reschedule with their Test Center prior to the scheduled appointment time. Because of limited seats, this will free up the appointment time for other testers. 

All testers are required to present a photo I.D. and to leave all belongings outside the testing room. Additional security requirements apply to some tests.
