Make-Up Exams


Scheduling & Policies

To take a make-up exam:

  1. Make an appointment with the Testing Center via RegisterBlast prior to taking the test. No walk-ins will be allowed.
  2. Read the Testing Center's rules before arriving to take the exam.
  3. Arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time to complete registration. Students should not expect to spend this time preparing to take their exams. All studying should be completed before entering the Testing Center.

If a student is more than 10 minutes late for their appointment, they must reschedule to minimize interruptions for those already testing. Testers should allow themselves enough time to complete their exams prior to the closing of the Testing Center when registering. It is highly recommended that students ask their professor how long the test may take so that they can plan accordingly.

If a student cannot come to a scheduled exam, they may reschedule and/or cancel their appointment in one of two ways:

  1. They can access RegisterBlast and follow the prompts provided on the right side of the screen. Note: If the test is scheduled for less than 24 hours from the time a tester is trying to reschedule, RegisterBlast will not allow this option. Examinees should utilize the second option for rescheduling at this time.
  2. They can contact the Testing Center via email at or phone at (989) 964-2820. If the Testing Center is closed, testers should leave their contact information, their reason for calling and a possible rescheduling date if applicable.

If payment has been made, the Testing Center will try to move the exam to another date so that the tester can avoid having to pay twice for the same exam. If the tester has scheduled for an exam they no longer need, and payment has been made, they can request a refund using the following steps:

  1. The Testing Center at SVSU should be contacted no less than two hours before the scheduled exam period.
  2. A written request, either in email or letter form, for an exam refund must be submitted to the Testing Center WITHIN 3 DAYS after the testing window has lapsed. The refund request must provide the student’s name, describe which exam they were scheduled for (time, day, etc.), and provide a phone number and email they can be reached at.

Refunds to the original credit or debit card used will be administered within five business days. Processing fees from RegisterBlast cannot be refunded. Testers who do not contact the Testing Center during the windows mentioned above will be considered no shows and will not receive a refund. The Testing Center can only refund the fees that it has collected; processing fees or fees collected by third parties cannot be refunded by the Center.
