Testing Services

The purpose of Testing Services is to coordinate the administration of college testing. The office also provides testing for community members: High School Equivalency Testing Services, CLEP, certification testing, and proctoring of Distance Education exams to citizens in the College’s five county service area.


  Northeast State recommends that unvaccinated people wear a mask during testing as well as others who feel more comfortable wearing one.     

NEWS FLASH!! The Testing Center on the Blountville campus has moved to C2303 - still in the General Studies Building, just down the hall. 

             Testing dates are typically added only 30 days in advance - check back frequently for added dates/times.

At the Blountville campus, please park in lots that do NOT require a permit.

Testing fees MUST be paid online if that option is available (see options under each test that require fees).

*At the Blountville campus, any in-person fees MUST be paid at the Quick Stop located at the main entrance.  This is the ONLY option!!

  Please email Testing@NortheastState.edu to schedule a virtual ACCUPLACER appointment.
