NMCC Testing and Certification Center

As of Monday, February 1, 2021, the Testing and Certification Center is open with limited availability for in-person testing.  All test vendors have been notified of our re-opening and should be contacted directly to schedule an exam.  To schedule an ASE exam or a CLEP exam, please call Angela Wardwell at 760-1125.

You will be required to wear a face covering at all times while on campus except when you are seated at the computer taking your exam.  Your face covering must be a disposable or cloth mask made of multiple layers of tightly woven fabric that fits snugly around the face, covers the nose, mouth and chin and secures with ear loops or ties behind the head.  Homemade and commercially manufactured masks that meet this definition are acceptable forms of face coverings.  Examples of face coverings that are not acceptable include bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with a valve or vent.

All entrances on campus are locked at this time.  When you arrive for your test, please park in Visitor Parking or the General Parking Lot.  Go to the Christie Entrance where you will find a sign with a list of COVID Health Assessment questions.  If you are able to answer NO to ALL questions, you should call the number on the sign and someone will come let you in.  If you answer YES to ANY of the questions, you should contact your exam sponsor to reschedule.  The questions are as follows:

1. Are you experiencing ONE OR MORE of the following COVID-19 related symptoms:

  • Fever (100.4°F or higher)
