What to Bring on Test Day

There are only a few things you really need to bring on test day, and a lot of things you'll be better off leaving at home. Be sure to bring:

  • A face covering, in case your test center requires students to wear one.
  • 2 No. 2 pencils with erasers.
  • An approved calculator.
  • Epinephrine auto-injectors (for example, EpiPens) are permitted without the need for accommodations. They must be placed in a clear bag and stored under your desk during testing. For policies on other medications and medical devices, contact the Services for Students with Disabilities office.

Nice to Have

  • A watch (without an audible alarm).
  • Extra batteries and backup equipment—you’ll have to ask for permission to access them. They can’t be on your desk during the test.
  • A bag or backpack.
  • A drink or snacks (for your break).
  • Breakfast before you arrive.
