New: Reserving Space in the Campus Testing Center
Starting Spring 2022 Students and Instructors began using RegisterBlast, a new reservation system integrated within Canvas, to book accommodated tests in the CTC. RegisterBlast will be replacing the D&A Testing Module and confirmation system used in previous semesters.
Please be aware the reservation system has changed the test request process to be instructor initiated, rather than the previous student-initiated process. Instructors will first need to schedule tests through RegisterBlast at least 5-business days prior to the test date. Students will then need to reserve their seats in the CTC a minimum of 3 days (72 hours) prior to their scheduled test. There will be no instructor confirmation required for exams since instructors will be entering the approved test day/time during the initial scheduling process.
Students should discuss Accommodation Letters with each instructor at the beginning of the semester to determine testing accommodations and how they will be provided.
Who may test at the Campus Testing Center?
Accommodated Exams – Students registered with Disability and Access (D&A) with testing accommodations may reserve space in the Campus Testing Center (CTC) to take their course exams.
Note: If the student is eligible to take exams at a Testing Facility within their professor’s department, they should schedule there instead. Additional information about accommodated testing options is available here: Options for Accommodated Testing Spaces at UT
Department testing centers:
- McCombs testing center: Beginning Second Summer session 2022, McCombs faculty will schedule exams using RegisterBlast. This will replace the previously used Event Management System (EMS) for reserving testing space.
- Chemistry courses: Contact information for testing center https://cm.utexas.edu/academics/undergraduate/testing-services
