Late arrivals

The University Testing Center administers exams by appointment only.

The time shown on your exam registration is the time at which you are expected to begin testing. We strongly encourage all test takers to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their appointment to allow time to park, check in, secure belongings, etc. 

What to do if you are running late

If you are running late, please contact us at (775) 682-9940 or by email at In most cases, we can move your appointment to a later time the same day.

While we will do our best to accommodate those who arrive late, our general policy is that test takers who are not checked in 15 minutes after their scheduled start time will be marked “no show.”

Test takers who arrive late enough in the day that the Testing Center will close before their allotted time expires will be required to sign a waiver form, acknowledging that they must stop testing at closing time, in order to test. The check-in desk closes one hour before the posted closing time every day. No test takers will be admitted to test after the check-in desk closes.
