Make-up testing is a service that the college provides for students who missed their tests or quizzes in class. Students should refer to the course syllabus and/or consult with the course instructor to review the instructor’s make-up testing policy. Students who miss an exam in class and need to make it up must first reach out to the course instructor before scheduling an appointment with the Testing Center.

If the exam must be taken within two days, please contact the Testing Center at dccproctor@sunydutchess.edu to find out if there is still availability.
