EAU CLAIRE - The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will serve as a testing site for all Educational Testing Service computer-based tests.

UW-Eau Claire students and community members can take the following standardized tests on computer at the university's Testing Office in room 226 of Schofield Hall:

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

The Pre-professional Skills Test (PPST) required for admission to the School of Education.

All exams sponsored by the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS).

The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX).

The PPST, GRE and most of the APICS examinations can be taken year round, at the test taker's convenience. In most cases, scores will be available immediately. The NAPLEX and several of the APICS exams are offered during certain testing windows.

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 1:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday. It's open one Saturday a month.

Those taking the exams can register with a major credit card for the GRE and PPST by calling (715) 836-5070. People wishing to take the APICS or NAPLEX exams must first obtain authorization from the appropriate professional organization.
