The RHEC Educational Testing Center is a member of the Consortium of College Testing Centers (CCTC), a national group of college and university test centers that support distance learning by offering secure, comfortable testing conditions. View the Testing Center’s Mission Statement.
If you attend an out-of-state college or university, a college that does not provide testing services, or you participate in a distance learning program, we are available to proctor your exam. Contact your institution to designate the Roanoke Higher Education Center as your proctoring site and then register for your exam. Exam materials/instructions may be sent to us by email, fax (540-767-6012) or mail at
