General Policies

Kellogg Community College Testing & Assessment Center policies are as follows.


Official photo identification such as a driver’s license or student ID is required for testing at the Testing & Assessment Center. Certain specialized testing programs have additional ID requirements.

Books, Notes, Etc.

Only materials specified by your instructor are allowed into the testing room. Most tests do not allow the use of notes, calculators, etc.

Cell Phones and Other Mobile Devices

These disturb other examinees and should not be brought to the testing center. Use of a cellular phone during a test will be considered cheating. If you must carry a pager, please make sure it will not sound during the test.


Small lockers are available in the Testing Center for storing personal items during your testing time. Use of these lockers is subject to the main campus locker use policy found in the KCC Handbook.

Children at the Testing Center

There are no facilities for childcare at the Testing Center, and children are not allowed in the testing rooms. College policy prohibits leaving children unattended in any campus building.


Test center personnel closely monitor testing rooms. For national testing programs, irregularities will be reported, and the student dismissed, if this is a provision of the exam.
