Clear, valid photo identification is required each time a test is taken. Examples of approved ID include:
- Hawkeye Card student ID

The Testing Center staff will follow the instructor's specific testing instructions attached to the test. It is the student’s responsibility to contact their instructors prior to the testing time to be certain of the materials that are allowed into the testing room and to be clear on all testing guidelines and instructions.

You cannot take outerwear (coats, hats, mittens, etc.), cell phones, backpacks, purses, watches, activity trackers, and like accessories into the testing rooms. Lockers with padlocks are available. Be prepared to empty pockets and show wrists and ankles before going into the testing lab.
Appointments are required for all testing. In order to provide appropriate accommodations, appointments that require testing accommodations should be made 24 hours in advance.
