The Test Service Bureau (TSB) is located on the main campus of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and resides inside the University Commons Building Room 124. TSB testing center administers a secure computer-based testing environment offering test security and confidentiality to all examinees. Although we are primarily a monitored computer-based facility, we also offer and are more than capable of administering high-stakes paper-and-pencil testing under the same conditions.
TSB strives to meet the needs of its current students, prospective students, faculty and surrounding community by providing a variety of testing services whether they are university-based exams, high stakes exams, or other certifying and licensure examinations. TSB supervises scanning and scoring operations for campus-based tests and other instructor designed examinations, surveys, and evaluations. FAMU Test Service Bureau is a member of the National College Testing Association (NCTA) and adheres to national guidelines in regards to the nature of all testing center based examinations.

Examinees may only schedule testing appointments from 9:00 AM thru 3:00 PM, so that examinees may be monitored by a test administrator. You may not schedule an exam that will last longer than 5:00 PM as the office will close and no time extensions will be given. If the total testing time extends closing or if the exam is untimed and testing continues until closing, then your exam will end at the close of business as is.
Setting an appointment for a Proctored Exam will entail the following process:
The examinee must select their desired exam 24 hours (1 day) prior to testing so that the appropriate Proctoring Service can be applied.
Examinees must provide a valid photo ID and proof of payment of testing fees, once they arrive at the testing center.
*If an appointment must be changed, the examinee must reply to the confirmation email. The Proctored Exam Appointment Process will be conducted entirely via internet and email. No appointments can be requested, changed, or confirmed by phone.
To reschedule testing appointments an examinee must email a request to cancel testing appointment form to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to two (2) business days of their scheduled time to test. Repeated cancellations may result in the examinee no longer being able to take proctored exams at the Testing Center and forfeiture of administrative fees.
