Application Deadlines and Testing Options
At the beginning of the semester, during the first 2 weeks, students will need to check and verify with their professor they have permission to test at an off-campus testing center. After receiving permission students then need to locate an approved Testing Center. ALL proctored exam applications must be submitted and received by the UT Dallas Testing Center at least 15 business days prior to the exam date. The UT Dallas Testing Center will adhere to the 15-business day deadline submission, no exceptions. If you fail to submit your application by the 15-business day deadline, you will need to consult with your professor directly to discuss other exam options.
