In certain instances, a student may be eligible to take a makeup test in the Assessment and Testing Center, Student Services Building, Room 238, Kentfield Campus.

The Assessment and Testing Center has established specific times and days for makeup testing. This testing takes place at the Kentfield Campus. In general, days and times are Monday through Thursday at 9:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. with limited seating for each time. With advance notice it may be possible to arrange make up testing at the Indian Valley Campus when staff are available.

After determining that a student has met the criteria for taking a makeup test, the instructor contacts the Assessment and Testing Center at to authorize the student as approved to take the makeup test. The instructor notifies the student that they may schedule the exam through the ATC. The Assessment and Testing Center staff will not schedule a makeup test requested by a student without prior authorization from the instructor.

Information Needed from Instructors

Instructors will provide the following information to the Assessment and Testing Center:

Note to instructor:
Please complete and email the Makeup Form (PDF) to or leave a paper copy of the form in the Assessment and Testing Center mailbox.

The Assessment and Testing Center staff do not grade, assess, advise, or otherwise assist students with tests beyond providing test directions, test proctoring, and enforcing test restrictions specified by the instructor. The ATC will not test students without appointments.

Students must have their College of Marin student number (M00######) and provide photo ID (driver’s license, student ID card, passport, etc.) to test. Students who do not present a photo ID at the scheduled test date will not be allowed to test. Students who miss their appointments should contact their instructor again to authorize rescheduling of the makeup test.

Unless other arrangements are made, completed tests will be returned to the instructor’s mailbox in the mailroom at the Kentfield campus or sent to Indian Valley Campus via daily campus courier.

Makeup Recommended Criteria

Makeup exams may be given at the discretion of each instructor and faculty may want to include criteria regarding makeup exams in their syllabi. Per AP 5070, provisions shall be made to accommodate students to reschedule a test or examination for a day that does not violate the student’s religious creed. In addition to religious holidays, faculty may allow makeup exams in the following situations:

In the event that a student misses an exam due to one of the aforementioned reasons and the instructor cannot administer the makeup exam, it may be scheduled at the Assessment and Testing Center. Makeup exams are a courtesy service provided to faculty if space and time allow.
