Testing Center

Located on the second floor (east) of Scianna Hall, the College of Business and Economic Development Testing Center can accommodate over 80 students. The Center provides ample space for online testing for business students, and the increased number of seats helps to streamline the busiest times of the semester, such as mid-term and finals week.

The College of Business and Economic Development Testing Center IS NOT THE SAME as the University Testing Center. We do not administer any of the National Exams. i.e. the PRAXIS, GRE, TOEFL, GMAT, etc. Please call the University Testing Center at 601.266.6123 for these exams.  GED exams are given at the Community Colleges.

The College of Business and Economic Development Testing Center also provides Certiport Certification, which allows students, faculty, staff, and members of the community to earn professional certification in business software. Certiport offers certification in software programs such as Microsoft Office, MTA, IC3, Adobe, and QuickBooks.


(Testing Center is not open during observed University holidays and closures.)

All students are expected to follow all University Academic Integrity Policies.  Failure to adhere to stated policies may result in students receiving a failing grade for that exam, the entire course, and he or she may be dismissed from his or her currently declared major and/or major department.  In addition, eligible students may be disqualified from graduating with academic honors, including Latin Honors.

Academic integrity violations have serious implications, including following the student on his or her official academic record at Southern Miss, and potentially on the official transcript.
