Testing Center

The AUS Testing Center serves as a central point of testing for both the AUS campus and the community.

The center accommodates placement tests for newly admitted AUS students as well as university testing. The center is authorized by major international testing providers ETS, Pearson Vue and College Board.

AMIDEAST, one of the region's most prominent international testing administrators, is an AUS testing partner and has a permanent office on our campus to administer the paper-based TOEFL test (ITP) on a regular basis, as well as other recognized international tests. Additionally, the AUS Testing Center is an examination partner with several universities and organizations in Europe and the United States.

Facilities include a 298-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).
