Alternate Testing Sites

*PLEASE BE ADVISED*
Testing at Shippensburg University has its advantages! After testing, each student receives a one-on-one debriefing session with a testing center staff member. This allows us to explain your individual test results (reading and math only) and the options you may have. Testing at an alternate site means you will ONLY receive a print out of your placement testing scores.

In order to accommodate students’ needs, we attempt to work with various institutions to proctor placement testing at their sites. Below is a list of institutions willing to offer placement testing for Shippensburg University students. When choosing an alternate site ALWAYS make sure you identify yourself as a Shippensburg student.
