Student Check-In Process

Students should check-in to ATS located in the basement of University Hall (UH), room 004. We recommend students arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled exam time to allow the check-in process to be completed. Check-in process includes:

  • physical valid photo ID (ex. UTA Student ID Card, Driver’s License, passport)
    • no printout or digital copies accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS
  • place all prohibited items in provided secured electronic lockers
    • only testing items listed on the exam request form will be allowed in the testing lab
Late Arrivals

Students are NOT allowed to check-in for an exam if the allotted time exceeds ATS testing hours. For example: If the exam duration time provided by the professor is 1.5 hours and the student arrives 1 hour prior to ATS closing, the student will not be able to take the exam and will need to reschedule (if applicable) or be referred to faculty for options.

Unexpected Closure

If the campus is closed due to inclement weather or an unexpected event, students’ appointments during that time will automatically be canceled. Faculty will be notified

Students testing in ATS lab will be monitored by testing staff and proctors. Proctoring of test takers will include room walk-through and real-time video monitoring inside testing lab and outside ATS office. 

All incidents of academic dishonesty and suspected violations will be reported to the faculty member and the Office of Student Conduct. An incident report will be completed detailing relevant information and real-time video when applicable.
