We have test centers at each of our six campuses so there is always a test center near you and helpful, courteous staff waiting to assist you. We look forward to serving and helping you achieve your dream of a college education!
There are test fees associated with some of our services while others are at no charge. Our fees are always the lowest possible to cover costs of providing the services. Test fees are subject to change without notice although we make every effort to announce changes in advance.
The Placement test scores are valid for 5 years. The testing fees are valid for four months from date of payment. If you pay for a service and then find that you will not be able to take your test, you must request a refund before the four month time period expires. Refund requests made after the four month expiration period cannot be considered.
Refund requests are accepted at all campus testing centers and processed according to EPCC refund guidelines and timelines. It is best to be sure that you really need a test before you pay for it.
Good luck on your tests and thanks for letting EPCC Testing Services help you achieve your dream to earn a college degree!
