Testing for UCI Students who Reside Outside of Southern California.

Are you an incoming student needing to take placement tests but reside outside of California? The Academic Testing Center can help you arrange to take your placement tests at an approved testing site near your home. You should make arrangements to have your tests taken by mid August. Some tests have earlier deadlines.

1. Contact a testing center to arrange a testing time. A list of centers is available through the Consortium of College Testing Centers. You will need to pay any fees associated with testing away from UCI. However, most centers charge only modest fees for test proctoring.

2. Print and complete our request form and mail it along with a check (payable to UC REGENTS) or money order in the amount of $25 (non-refundable fee) per exam, to the Academic Testing Center:

Academic Testing Center
University of California, Irvine
3040 AIRB
Irvine, CA 92697-4425

The Academic Testing Center will contact the chosen testing center and mail the requested tests, providing postage for the return mailing. Your tests will be scored on the next regularly-scheduled testing date at UCI and results will be posted to our results web pages (click here to check your results) and made available to your academic advising office.

Although this remote testing service is available to you, you are still required to make arrangements for attending one of the Summer Orientation programs. If you are unable to come to campus this summer, please contact your academic unit as soon as possible to make alternate arrangements.

We hope this service will provide more convenience for you as you begin your academic career at UCI. If you need any assistance with this process, please contact us by telephone at (949) 824-6207 or by email at testcenter@uci.edu.
