Students are responsible for knowing and providing the materials that can be used during the exam (i.e. books, notes, calculator, ruler, etc.).  Purdue University Fort Wayne Testing Services may need to provide computer-based tests as specified by the professor/institution. The professor/institution is responsible for providing the necessary passwords or information to access a student's test. All materials and information must be received by the student's scheduled appointment date and time. If materials and information are not received by the student's appointment date and time, the appointment will be rescheduled. Rescheduling an appointment may require an extension from the professor and/or institution.

Testing Services does NOT provide envelopes and/or postage to return exams. Students are not allowed to remove the exam from the Testing Center. If an exam is to be returned to another institution, it is the student’s or the institution’s responsibility to provide Purdue University Fort Wayne Testing Services with envelopes and postage to return the exam. Any exams being mailed internationally must be in a metered postage envelope. Metered postage forms and amounts can be completed online at https://www.usps.com/ship/customs-forms.htm. Testing Services recommends that students use a traceable mailing method such as Fed-Ex or UPS to return exams.

The Purdue University Fort Wayne Testing Services address must be used as the return address. Mail pickup and delivery to Purdue University Fort Wayne Testing Services occurs Monday through Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Childcare arrangements must be made prior to the day and time of the exam. We are sorry, but children are not allowed in the testing facilities.
