How do I set up a correspondence test?
Once Testing Services has a tentative agreement with a student to proctor an exam, the student must then make sure that…
- The originating institution has mailed the exam to Testing Services.
- If the exam is pencil/paper, either you or the originating institution has provided a postage-paid envelope in order to return the completed materials.
- UTSA has received the exam at least five (5) business days prior to the exam date. If UTSA has not received the exam at least five (5) business days prior to the scheduled date, then the exam is subject to rescheduling due to staffing obligations. This requirement applies to exams being sent by fax, mail, or electronic methods.
Contact us once the exam has arrived to confirm the scheduled test time.
As the student seeking to add official documents to your academic record, you must make contact with the Testing Services personnel and confirm your test is ready to proceed. A lack of communication (not responding to emails or phone calls from the proctor) or communicating through a third party (having a parent, guardian, or instructor contact on your behalf only) means that you have chosen not to test at UTSA.
