The AUS Testing Center serves as a central point of testing for both the AUS campus and the community.
The center administers placement tests for newly admitted AUS students, external exams, and facilitates general university testing.
The center is an authorized Prometric Test Center, a Pearson VUE® authorized Test Center (PVTC Select) and is part of the ETS Strategic Testing Network.
AMIDEAST, one of the region's most prominent international testing administrators, is an AUS testing partner and has a permanent office on the AUS campus to administer TOEFL tests (paper-based) on a regular basis, as well as other recognized international tests.
The center offers a range of internationally recognized tests including: Internet-Based TOEFL, Institutional paper-based TOEFL; IELTS English Language Test; SAT; Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE); and Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam (PE).
Facilities include a 300-desk hall for paper-based tests, a smaller testing facility with 50 desks for paper-based tests, computer facilities for Internet-based testing, and proctoring services for external tests, such as with distance-learning examinations. We also provide proctoring services for the Law School Admission Test-LSAT (AUS code: 0714).
All testing halls are sound-proof and have a built-in audio system. The computer labs and small testing hall have a glassed-in proctor's room and parabolic mirrors to meet the standards required for international testing regulations. Access to the center and examination halls is friendly to people with special needs (wide elevator, ramp, wide doors).
