We have made the very difficult decision to suspend in-person testing services for the protection of exam candidates and staff members. This decision will continue to be evaluated as the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) situation evolves. Please check our website often for updates. While testing services are temporarily unavailable, our team is available. To speak with a staff member, please call 480-965-7146 or email uts@asu.edu.
