On the test day, arrive at the Newtown campus 30 minutes before the schedule time. Newtown Campus is at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA 18940. If you bring up the college’s website at www.bucks.edu and scroll down to the bottom of the page, click on the arrow next to “Maps and Directions”, then click on “Newtown Campus” to find directions to our campus. To locate the V1 Visitor and/or S-2 parking lots and the Gateway Center (building 3) which is directly across from those parking lots, from the “Newtown Campus” web page click on “Campus Map”.
Park in the V1 Visitor’s parking lot. If this lot is full, park in Lot “S-2”.
Walk directly across to the Gateway Center (three flag poles in front of the building and a green metal roof over the doorway) and go to the receptionist desk.
If you parked in Lot “S-2” advise the Test Proctor you need a parking pass which you will then place on your dashboard. If you choose not to place the parking pass on you dashboard you will be ticketed.
Lastly the Test Proctor will request an ID. The ID must be government issued, such as a driver’s license or passport. Without a valid ID we cannot admit you into the testing room. After signing in you will go to the testing room and logon to the testing application. If this is your first time testing you will be required to register with Certiport, Microsoft, Intuit or Adobe. After completing the registration process, you will select the test, enter the voucher # and be approved by the Test Proctor. When the test is completed you can get a hard copy of the results.
