Testing Services Online at Southwest

All on campus testing services at the College have been suspended.

  • For August 2020 graduates, all ETS Proficiency Profile exit exams will be waived. Major Field exams for Southwest A.A.S. programs remain accessible online through PAWS and are required for graduation. If you require Testing Services assistance, please contact us via testing@southwest.tn.edu, or 901-333-4170.
  • All coursework is now online via PAWS. Exams will be administered via PAWS as well. If a student has been approved for extended time, the extended time will be granted through PAWS as normally done through on ground coursework.
  • If a student currently registered with SDS has a concern or specific testing need regarding accommodations such as large text, text to speech, or reader and scribe services he/she can request exam proctoring appointments via email at sds@southwest.tn.edu . In partnership with Testing Services, accommodated proctoring for the accommodations listed above will be provided via Microsoft Office TEAMS by appointment only.
  • Due to COVID-19 and restrictions with on-campus proctored testing and limited staffing, Accuplacer challenge tests are suspended until further notice.
