The Testing Center at Memorial Library is not restricted to SUNY Cortland students. We accommodate any candidate who has registered for an exam sponsor/vendor we offer. Pearson VUE hosts hundreds of exam sponsors/vendors; SUNY Cortland Memorial Library works with a select few (catered to the needs of the campus community). Our Testing Center can accommodate up to ten candidates at once. All test administrators are certified annually. 

Lockers are available for people to use to store their personal items while they are taking their test.

Test takers who will be late can call 607-753-5441.  For all other questions/concerns, as per Pearson VUE Policy and Procedures, the candidate must contact Pearson.  Test administrators are not to discuss exam scheduling information with a candidate.

Although the majority of tests are teacher certification exams (mainly NY, but other states, as well), we also offer strength and conditioning exams (personal trainer, group exercise instructor, exercise physiologist, etc.).  If a candidate has questions about what specific exam(s) they need, but can’t find it through the sites listed below, they  should contact their academic advisor.

Memorial Library does not accept any form of payment for an exam, nor do we schedule exams. Candidates must schedule their exams through the sites below. If they cancel an exam less than 24 hours of their scheduled appointment, they forfeit the money paid for the exam.
