Testing Locations and Admission

Where to go to take your test

Consult your registration materials to determine the location of your test. Many tests are given in the McCombs School of Business, Graduate School of Business (GSB) Building, Room 2.130, which is located across the street from the Perry-Castaneda Library (PCL) at 2110 Speedway.  Click here for directions to the Graduate School of Business (GSB) Building.

In GSB there are two testing labs.  Click here to see a map of the 2nd floor of GSB (note: The CTL testing lab is located where it says "CTL Testing" on the map).

  • Room 2.130N (not indicated on GSB 2nd floor map) is a computer-based testing ETS lab, where national tests such as the GRE, TEC, and Praxis are given.
  • Room 2.130K (not indicated on GSB 2nd floor map) is also a computer-based testing lab; in it CLEP tests and certain UT Austin tests are given.

During testing periods throughout the year, many tests are given in other buildings on campus; consult your testing materials to ascertain the testing location, or call 512-232-2662 for more information.

Visitor parking is available at various locations around campus. More information on visitor parking can be found on the Parking & Transportation Services website. Please read parking signs on campus carefully to avoid receiving a citation.

What to bring when you take a test

For any national test (such as GRE, Praxis, TEC, etc), it is the test-taker's responsibility to learn and to follow the ID requirements of that particular test. Non-US citizens must use a current and valid passport for admission to a test.

When you register online for a UT Austin (for UT students) test you will be given the location of your test room. At the test room, you must present a generally accepted form of photo identification. Students taking CLEP exams must present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport. We provide testing materials for paper and pencil tests, including test books and pencils, with the exception of calculators. To determine if you may use a calculator on a test, please see the test description for that test.
