Bulldog Testing Center
BULLDOG TESTING CENTER
The Bulldog Testing Center (BTC) is a campus facility that helps both faculty and students with their testing needs. We provide a proctored, secure, quiet, relaxing environment for test takers and a simple process for faculty to set-up exams in person or through email. The BTC administers early-take, make-up, full class, and computer based Canvas exams. The BTC also provides an excellent testing environment for department exams such as Red/Orange Tag, Calculus Readiness Test (CRT), and US Constitution Test.
Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) is a resource for students with disabilities to achieve academic, cultural, and social excellence. For more information please visit the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) department website.
If you are interested in taking the TEAS, GRE, GRE Subject, TOEFL, PRAXIS, or any
non-Fresno state examinations please visit the Professional Examination Services (PES) department website.
NOTICE: Exam availability & details are contingent on prior agreements made with exam creators. Exam calendars are currently in beta, please report any inconsistencies to BTC staff.
Student Testing Hours are 8:30-4:30 (pencils down)
Notice to faculty: The BTC can only accommodate a maximum of 200 exams each day. Faculty please note that tests will be administered each day on a first-come, first-served
basis. Please turn in test materials and dates to use the BTC as early as possible
to reserve your preferred exam slot. BTC staff will do their best to accommodate original
requests, but we may need to work with your preferred days/times, as we cannot exceed
the daily 200 exam max capacity.
