Academic Testing and Tutoring

The Testing Center is following COCC guidelines by requiring masks, encouraging hand hygiene, disinfecting socially distanced testing stations, establishing foot traffic patterns, and assuring fresh air circulates through the testing room to address aerosols.

COCC Testing Center is operating from a central location on our Redmond campus. We are conducting Certiport and PearsonVUE certification exams, including GED exams. Additionally, we are testing for the state of Oregon's Building Codes Division. If you have accommodations, COCC Testing is coordinating services via online platforms and working closely with COCC’s Disability Services office. For more information, visit the Redmond testing website.

All COCC tutoring will be offered via online formats in Spring and Summer terms. We will not be offering any face-to-face tutoring at this time. All tutoring staff are now working remotely. Online tutoring is free for COCC students in courses currently offered.

Students can access tutoring in one of two online formats:

  1. COCC tutors are available during scheduled hours via Zoom. Students: log into your Blackboard account and click on the "COCC Tutoring" tab. Schedules for COCC Tutors can be located in Blackboard and on the COCC Tutoring website.

  2. Online tutoring is also offered through our Western eTutoring Consortium, with current information available here: Online Tutoring.
