We’d like to offer a few tips that should make your experience at the Alexandria Testing Center stress free.


  • If taking an ELI exam print your pass before arriving to the testing center.  Have a valid government issued photo I.D.
  • Arrive early to allow yourself enough time to complete the exam. (at least 90 minutes before closing)
  • If taking a faculty make up exam, make sure you know the name, the course number of the test to be taken.  Also contact the faculty member to ensure the test has been placed in the testing center.
  • Always visit the website before coming to testing for hours of operation.
