Welcome! Our mission is to provide comprehensive testing services, serving MU and the wider central Missouri area. We offer a variety of paper-based and computer-based tests, including high school equivalency, admissions, placement, credit by examination, and credentialing for technical and professional fields.
Our main offices are open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM and on Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Computer-based testing (GRE, TOEFL, MCAT) will be open Monday through Saturday except during non-peak periods when the office will be open Wednesday to Saturday. Please check your admission ticket for correct dates and times for all exams in advance. Our entrance is on the south side of Parker Hall on the ground level. Limited space is available on a walk-in basis for exams. Please call 573-882-4801 to check availability if you need an immediate exam. Some examinations require pre-registration and are not available on a walk-in basis.
Payment information: Most exams will be paid using our new online registration system by credit card or electronic check. GED exams must be paid by money order. Standby testing is available on some tests. Contact Testing Services for more information. All exams must be paid in advance.
University of Missouri Testing Services does NOT have designated visitor parking spots for test-takers. Metered parking is available along Sixth Street, Stewart Road, on several levels of Conley Avenue, Hitt Street, and Turner Avenue parking garages, and in the corner lot at Fifth Street and Elm Street. For more information about parking regulations, please visit the MU Office of Parking & Transportation Services.
The special administration fee for proctored exams is $58. Please consult your faculty adviser or the requesting agency before you sign up for a special administration since the above fees are nonrefundable.
To request a special administration, please come to Testing Services at 4 Parker Hall or call 882-4801. Prepayment is required before the test will be scheduled. In some situations, you may be required to order the test materials. If so, please request test materials to be shipped to Testing Services, 4 Parker Hall, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211. When the materials have arrived, you will receive a call to schedule the testing date and time. Please remember, it is your responsibility to maintain contact with Testing Services. Testing materials usually arrive with a "return by" date. After this time we are obligated to return them to their source. If after arranging for special administration, you are not called by Testing Services within 10 days, please call us to see if your test materials have arrived. We will make every effort to contact you upon their arrival; however, circumstances sometimes prevent us from being able to reach you.
IF YOU NEED ACCOMMODATIONS FOR ANY OF THE TESTS WE OFFER, PLEASE CALL US FOR MORE INFORMATION. We will be happy to help you! Requests for accommodations must be received at least two weeks before the exam.
