Testing Centers


Whether you are a new student, a current student, or a community member, RCCC’s Testing Centers offer a professional setting for you to take your exams. We currently have Testing Centers at both our North and South Campus locations.  We are committed to providing you with quality proctoring support from qualified and fully trained staff.  Through our Testing Centers, we offer many different testing and assessment services, including:

  • Placement Testing: Testing for skill levels ensures placement into appropriate initial courses. 
  • Academic Testing: At the instructor’s discretion, if you are enrolled in online, hybrid or independent study courses or if you need to take a make-up exam, you may take your tests in one of our Testing Centers.
  • Distance Proctoring Services for other institutions: RCCC will proctor tests for students who take correspondence, continuing education or distance learning courses from other colleges and universities. There is a $20.00 proctoring fee per test.
  • High School Equivalency (GED) Testing: Earn your High School Equivalency Diploma (GED) at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
  • High Stakes/Professional Testing: Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is an authorized testing site for Pearson-VUE.
  • Credit For Prior Learning: The RCCC Testing Center is now offering the  CLEP (College Level Examination Program) and DSST exams.  These exams allow you to earn college credit and complete your degree faster.  CLEP and DSST  are done by an appointment basis only.

Special Arrangements for Accommodated Testing

The Testing Centers are committed to ensuring all students have equal access to all forms of testing offered at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. If you have a documented disability, reasonable testing accommodations can be provided with advanced notice. No variation of the placement exam can be made without prior approval. Please meet with a Disability Services Counselor prior to scheduling any testing or assessment services, as you might be eligible to receive such accommodations.
