The NDSCS Test Centers (in Wahpeton and Fargo) offer face-to-face test proctoring. The Test Center will follow guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including requiring face coverings and limiting the number of testers to allow for physical distancing. Drop-in testing is available, but we recommend that students schedule testing appointments as there may be limited testing spaces available, especially in Fargo.
