How to Contact Us

Miss a test because you were sick or had an emergency? Don’t sweat it. Contact your instructor. The Kirtland Testing Center is all you need to make it up.

Kirtland is designed for your success. We know you may be sick or have an emergency and miss a test. We’re ready to help you catch up.

Welcome to the future. In the old days you’d have to reschedule with your instructor and possibly not be able to make up a test. At Kirtland, all you need to do is show up for your make up (and be prepared, of course)!

You must contact your instructor and make arrangements to take your test at the Testing Center.

Your instructor will send the following to the Testing Center:

  • your name
  • the deadline
  • notes about permitted materials
  • any special parameters

All you have to do is arrive prepared* and the Testing Center staff will administer the test on behalf of your instructor. They even deliver your completed test to your instructor.

* Prepared includes bringing any materials allowed by your instructor for use during the test, as well as your Kirtland student ID or your drivers license.
