Testing Center Information
- Testing at Rio Salado's nine certified testing sites in Maricopa County is conducted on a walk-in basis. (Testing sessions can be scheduled for larger-scale group testing for businesses and organizations outside the college community.)
- It is your responsibility to verify that the testing center location has received your test materials at least 24 hours before the day you test.
- Exams from other schools and organizations can be be sent to the testing center using mail, email, or fax:
Important Note: Exam materials from your school or organization need to be received by your selected testing site at least 48 hours before the selected test date. This allows time for processing. Exams that are received later (for example, the day of your test), may not be processed on time. This can result in delays and may even prevent candidates from taking the test.

- A $25 Rio Salado College administration per-test fee is paid on the day of the test. All fees are subject to change without notice.
- Proctoring fees can be at the Rio Salado Tempe location by credit card, checks and cash during Student Business Services open hours. If Student Business Services is not open or when payment is made at other Rio Salado testing center, only money orders made payable to Rio Salado College are accepted.
