Class Testing

Class testing is the most common service provided by the testing center. Students do not need to make appointments at the Main Campus Learning Commons to take out-of-class exams. Students must take their tests prior to their instructor's assigned deadline and during our hours of operation. As with all testing, a government issued photo ID is required.

Central Ohio students take proctored exams at the Main Campus in downtown Columbus or at the Dublin Testing Center. Beavercreek area students take proctored exams at the Beavercreek Location Testing Center.

Students unable to travel to campus (outside 30 minutes of a Franklin location) must find a proctor to administer the test and complete the Proctor Form on the Course Website. Proctors must be approved by the Learning Commons. Exams can be sent directly to proctors via email or fax. Per the Franklin University academic bulletin, students are required to locate an appropriate proctor and are responsible for any/all associated fees.

Placement Testing

Placement exams are designed and used to determine the best fit for students as they begin Franklin courses. Your admissions advisor will notify you about placement exams that are required before enrollment. Franklin uses ACCUPLACER tests to determine Re-Entry math, Reading and Writing, and Computer Literacy placements. For more information about ACCUPLACER visit College Board.

It is recommend that students take time to prepare for placement tests. In order to assist with this, study guides and practice tests are provided.
