Department Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Academic Testing Center is to support the academic excellence at Casper College through the diligent administration of Digital Learning, special-needs, makeup, and ACT WorkKeys testing for the campus community.

As a public service, and for a nominal fee, Casper College contracts with several high-stakes testing companies to offer certification exams and other tests through their testing systems and has informal agreements with other colleges and universities to administer tests for their students.

The Academic Testing Center adheres to the National College Testing Association’s Professional Standards and Guidelines.
