Testing Lab Hours

The computer lab consists of 34 stations (32 with computers) and operates on a first come, first serve basis (except TEAS V, proctored exams, and correspondence exams which require appointments). Most days we are able to accommodate all examinees. If you are traveling a distance or have a deadline, please call TREC at 512.245.2276 the morning you plan to take your exam.

Please be aware that computer technology is still imperfect, and occasionally technical difficulties may cause delays in any part of the process, especially related to computer-based tests. Therefore, we suggest that if your test has a deadline, that you take it sufficiently early to allow for scores to be received in time if such difficulties should occur. The Testing Center strives to ensure that tests are administered, scored, and reported accurately, securely, and in as timely a manner as possible, but we cannot be responsible for your deadlines.


Test registration and starting times for all examinations are as follows:
