   1.  You must present a valid photo I.D. This may include a current driver’s license or state issued
        ID card, WC student I.D., current alien registration/passport, or military I.D. You will not be
        allowed to take a test without proper identification. Expired ID's are not valid.

   2.  You must be ready to take your test when you arrive in the testing center. Studying in the
        waiting area is not allowed. 

   3.  You do not have to make an appointment to test UNLESS you require special accommoda-
        tions. Contact the Office of Disabilities at 817-598-6350 to schedule.

   4.  All students taking on-line tests must know their user name and password to sign on to
        their class.

   6.  Food, drinks, or tobacco products are NOT allowed.

   7.  Children, friends or family are NOT allowed in the testing center or waiting area.
