UM Professional and Educational Testing Center

With the help of Educational Testing Service (ETS), a private educational testing and measurement organization located in Princeton, New Jersey, the University of Mississippi has installed a complete ETS Computer-Based Testing Center that allows students of any age to take ETS-developed tests on the Oxford campus rather than in Tupelo, Memphis, or Jackson.

The new lab is located in the Jackson Avenue Center at 1111 West Jackson Avenue, and is equipped with four testing stations that include networked personal computers with headphones. The center will be operated by two certified ETS administrators of the Office of Professional Development and Non-Credit Education.

The University of Mississippi Testing Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday unless otherwise stated on your confirmation form.
