Attention Instructors:  Due to the implementation of the Student Success Act (SB 1456), which requires the testing of all first-time college students the following changes have been made for Make-Up Exam testing.  The implementation of these new policies will assure that our college complies with the new law and your cooperation is appreciated. If you have questions or concerns please contact the Supervisor of the Assessment Services Office directly.
