Late Policy

The University of Delaware Testing Centers in Newark, Dover and Georgetown adhere to a late policy for scheduled exams.

To minimize wait times and ensure available testing stations for students, exams are scheduled by appointment. Students must arrive within the first 15 minutes of their scheduled exam time, otherwise they may be required to reschedule their exam for another time or possibly another day.

We want to be respectful of everyone’s time and when we have a full schedule of appointments, we may be unable to give latecomers the full time allotted for their exams.

Exam Scheduling Tips

  • Familiarize yourself with the Testing Centers’ operating hours so that you schedule enough time to complete your exam before the facility closes. For example, if you have a two-hour exam and the Testing Center closes at 8 p.m., you should schedule your exam at 5:30 p.m. at the latest to account for time to park, store personal belongings, and check in.
  • Book your exams in advance for the entire semester. This will allow you to reserve the times most convenient for you, and you will receive email reminders for your upcoming exams.
  • Please be aware of the late policy and communicate directly with our office if you need support in any way related to abiding by our guidelines.
