About Testing Services

Testing Services was established as part of the Counseling and Testing Center in 1965 to assist with psychological testing at Portland State University. As the need for student make-up testing and community testing emerged, Testing Services grew to provide these exams and many others. Testing Services currently proctors approximately 9,000 exams a year.
