Courtesy Testing Service

The Courtesy Testing Service (CTS) is an alternative testing service for students who have missed a test for a university sanctioned reason listed below:
  • Medical or mental health event
  • Religious reason
  • AU athletic event (student-athletes only)
To begin the request process, the faculty member must fill out the Test Request Form at least 3 business days prior to the desired exam date. You will then hear from a CTS representative within 48 hours.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • All arrangements regarding the exam should be discussed between the faculty member and student prior to the completion of the request form.
  • At completion, the exam will be placed in a sealed envelope and delivered BY THE STUDENT to the location indicated on the request form.
  • Cell phones may not be used in the test space unless otherwise noted on your request form.
