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 result/s (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 score/s.

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.
