Students writing with Testing Services must follow the rules of the Centres to uphold academic integrity in the testing environment.
Students that are feeling sick, ill or exhibiting any symptoms in relation to COVID-19 are not to come into Testing Services or on campus and to connect with their instructor regarding next steps for their scheduled test/exam.
If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 less than 14 days after visiting Testing Services for your assessment, you are to report this information to our COVID Reporting Team by email at email@example.com or by phone at 416-675-5007. This will allow us to communicate with other test takers and comply with government recommendations.
A face mask or covering must be worn prior to entering Testing Services, in our reception area and in any of our testing labs. If a student requires the use of a private room, they are allowed to remove their face mask/covering once they have safely entered the room and closed the door behind them.
Students are required to sanitize their hands prior to approaching Testing Services staff for assistance. Hand sanitizer is available on site. Alternatively, students can also go to the nearest washroom to clean their hands.
