Scheduling Space For Tests, Midterms And Final Exams At The DSO

Instructions to schedule a test at the DSO:

  1. Work with the instructor to determine if testing space at the DSO is required.
  2. Log in to the DSO Portal and click “Book a midterm, test or quiz” or “Book a final exam”.
  3. The deadlines to ensure space availability are as follows: (The DSO will attempt to fulfill any request received after these dates.)
    1. Requests for tests/midterm is Friday, September 15, 2017.
    2. Requests for final exams to be taken within the Final Exam Period is Friday, November 3, 2017.
  4. Exams must be scheduled no less than 3 days before the exam.  The ‘scheduling’ day (when you go online) and day of the exam do NOT count as business days.  Example, for a Friday exam, it must be scheduled no later than the preceding Monday at 11:59 PM.  (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are the complete business days).  All tests should be booked for the same time and day as the class, unless authorized by the instructor or when prohibited by the student’s course schedule.  Any student scheduling tests without explicit authorization from the instructor will be seen as violating the honor code.
  5. If you have any challenges making requests please send an e-mail to dso-testing@ncsu.edu or complete the 2017 Fall Semester Exams Google Doc (Difficulty Scheduling and Wait List)

*Please be aware that the DSO is not able to pass out parking passes for students taking exams. You will need to park on campus where you normally park and either catch the bus or allow time for walking to get to your scheduled exam on time.

Tests for Distance Education courses:

Please see the following websites for more information.
