PLEASE READ for updated COVID-19 Testing Procedures 

Updated August 3, 2020

NOTE: The Testing Center is not on campus and has not been approved to return but we continue to work remotely to assist you with your testing needs.

Please see below for virtual testing options. You can also email us at cyfair.testingcenter@lonestar.edu with your questions. Email is the preferred method of communication currently. 

When our campus re-opens (date to be determined), all exams will require appointments. We will not offer any exams on a walk-in basis. You will use the “schedule an appointment” link to make an exam appointment. You won’t see any available dates until we are officially back on campus, so please continue to check our website for additional updates.

NOTE: some exams are now being offered virtually and do not require that you wait until we return to campus. You can begin making virtual appointments for these exams. Refer to the chart below for specific details. Exams with virtual proctoring options will incur an additional proctoring fee paid to the 3rd party company. If you are unable to pay the additional fee, you can wait for testing to resume when we return to campus.
