9.5.2 Michigan Tech Testing Center (MTTC)

The Michigan Tech Testing Center (MTTC) provides high quality testing services. The main testing center, in Room 215 Rekhi Hall, has 30 testing stations including 18 computers and 12 laptops. All stations are monitored through closed circuit video feed. Lockable storage is available for a test candidate’s personal belongings. This facility is an ideal location for accommodated exams, exams for online courses, or make-up exams. Sponsored (commercial) exams like the FE and GRE are given in our 10 seat testing facility, Room 226 in the Van Pelt and Opie Library. Both sites meet the standards of the National College Testing Association (NCTA). Information about the MTTC, for both instructors and students, can be found on the website http://www.mtu.edu/ctl/testing-center/ or by e-mailing techtesting-l@mtu.edu, or by calling 906-487-1001.
