This test is free of charge and open to all, however there are approximately 10 spots available per day of testing, allowing for about 20 minutes for each test! No appointments will be taken due to the need for privacy. Arrive early because testing is first come, first served. Numbers will be given out to individuals and people need to wait in the office. If a person leaves the office and their number is called, we can substitute another person at our discretion.
The Rainbow Center is located in Room 403 on the fourth floor of the Student Union.
