You may already be aware of the Student Centre located in D299 Loeb Building, but did you know that CUOL offers another service from that location?
The Carleton University Testing Centre (CUTC) provides ‘Grade A’ service to various professional institutes (90+), universities and colleges across the world. Our main goal is to provide flexible, efficient and accessible assistance to professional institutions and students who are looking to qualify and advance through their certification and degree program examinations.
We are a proud member of the National College Testing Association (NCTA) and part of the Consortium of College Testing Centres (CCTC). We also recently became the first Ontario university to become a certified Testing Centre!
The CU Testing Centre is open year-round to invigilate exams for other educational institutions and outside agencies. We can accommodate both paper-based and online examinations, as well as several other forms/layouts of professional practice sessions, including certification exams such as MCAT.
We are constantly working to improve are services, and an important aspect of that is the feedback we receive from our follow-up surveys to individuals who completed exams at our centre. I’m happy to say that 90 per cent of the feedback we receive is positive!
