Testing Services Online at Southwest

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

  • 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.
