  • No food or drink is allowed in the Testing Center.
  • All electronics, including cell phones, calculators or other devices must be turned OFF.
  • Children are not allowed in the Testing Center and may not be left unattended on campus.
  • Students who require disability accommodations when testing should contact Disability Services at least one week before they plan to test.
  • The Testing Proctor reserves the right to dismiss any student who is disruptive during testing.
  • Students taking the ACCUPLACER test need to have their Social Security Number available.

Cheating

Any student found to have committed the following misconduct is subject to disciplinary sanction(s), condition(s) and/or restriction(s). Misconduct or prohibited behavior includes, but is not limited to:

a) Copying from another student’s test paper.

b) Using any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests or examinations.

c) Possession during a test of materials that are not authorized by the person giving the test, such as class notes or specifically designed “crib notes,” or any other device or technology that would aid in cheating.

Inclement Weather Policy

In the event that the weather is so severe that the college administration believes that life and property may be in danger, the chancellor of the college may cancel classes until weather conditions improve. When such a decision is made, the news media will be notified. The media list includes the following:

  • KATV-Channel 7
  • KARK-Channel 4
  • KTHV-Channel 11
  • FOX 16

Students should watch for such announcements on Little Rock area television stations. If the college closes or changes hours of operation because of adverse weather conditions, the college will post the news to this website. In addition, the news will be posted to the college Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. The college also recommends that all students and employees sign up with the RAVE Emergency Notification System. When you sign up, all closures or changes in hours of operation will be delivered directly to your cell phone.

If there is no announcement, students should assume the college is open.

Because University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College is a commuter campus, inclement weather has a greater adverse impact than on a residential campus. The effects fall unevenly on individual students as road conditions and circumstances vary. Thus, individual decisions are required when hazardous weather conditions exist but the college is officially open.
