Class Testing

Class testing is the most common service provided by the testing center. Students do 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. Access codes for proctored exams will never be provided to students. They are only provided to proctors. 

Central Ohio students can either use ProctorU or take proctored exams at the Main Campus in downtown Columbus. To schedule an appointment in the Testing Center, click here. 

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 in their Canvas course. 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.

If the course has computer-based exams, ProctorU - our online proctoring service - can be used as a proctor as well. For more information about ProctorU, read our FAQ.

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 and Reading and Writing. For more information about ACCUPLACER visit College Board.

Central Ohio students can take placement exams at the Main Campus in downtown Columbus or utilizing Accuplacer's online proctoring partner Examity. Please check our location for specific hours and more information. All students have the option of using Accuplacer's online proctoring partner, Examity. A guide to using Examity can be found here.

Students unable to travel to campus (outside of 30 minutes of the downtown location) must use Examity or find a physical location within Accuplacer's "Remote Accuplacer Network." 

It is recommended that students take time to prepare for placement tests. Click here for study materials. There is a $15 fee for placement exam retakes. Students can register and pay for their retake here.
