Test Return

Completed examinations will be returned to the instructor as requested on the submission forms, in one of two ways:

In-Person Pick-Up

An instructor or his/her designee may pick up exams any time the Testing Center is open for service.  Please bring a valid photo ID when picking up materials. Instructors are asked to pick up unused tests and materials as soon as the testing deadline has passed. 

Instructors at Dublin, Gahanna and Westerville Centers must pick up exams from front desk personnel at their site. A pick up slip must be signed to receive the completed exam. Unused exams will be placed in the instructor's mailbox within two weeks of the exam deadline date.

Campus Mail Delivery

Testing Center staff delivers exams to the campus mailroom Monday through Thursday during the semester. Exams will be returned in red envelopes – designated for test return only. Please return the red envelopes to the Testing Center.

*Your exam return request cannot change with each exam.  Your first request will be adhered to throughout the semester. 

NOTE: During the last two weeks of the semester, ALL exams must be picked up by the instructor or by his/her designee. Campus mailroom delivery will not be used. All materials not picked up by the first Thursday after Finals Week will be discarded.
