Welcome to the Office of Testing Services

The Office of Testing Services is a unit within Appalachian's University College. University College consists of the university's integrated general education curriculum, academic support services, residential learning communities, and co-curricular programming - all designed to support the work of students both inside and outside of the classroom.  For more information on University College at Appalachian State University, go to universitycollege.appstate.edu/

The mission of the Office of Testing Services is to provide high quality testing and assessment services that observe the National College Testing Association (NCTA) professional testing standards and guidelines in order to successfully meet the growing needs of our students, faculty, administration and community.

Testing Services provides a Computer Based Testing Center in the John Thomas Student Support Building for the administration of national entrance/certification exams.  We also administer nationally scheduled paper and pencil exams such as LSAT, MPRE, GRE Subject Tests, and National Counselors Exam on Saturdays throughout the year.  Please check the calendar for test dates and locations.
