Madison College's Testing Center is here to provide you with comprehensive, accessible testing services in a welcoming environment to support college initiatives and help you succeed.
If you have not completed high school and want to earn your credential, you can take the General Educational Development (GED) tests and receive a GED Certificate. Or you can earn a High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) with the addition of the Health requirement.
Accommodated testing enables you to complete tests based on your disability and your personal accommodation plan. Accommodated testing services are available at all campus locations. Proctors are present to provide monitoring and assistance. Submit a reservation request.
You can take certification exams for various careers including Certified Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI), and Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Certification (available at the Truax campus only).
