Are you a distance education learner, homeschooler or high schooler? Do you need to take an exam through your school off campus?
The library can administer exams from institutions including distance learning centers, colleges and universities, and licensing agencies. Staff members in Adult Services will act as proctors and will verify identification and ensure that the time limit for taking the test is adhered to, that no unauthorized sources are used and that the completed test is returned in the manner specified.
When is test proctoring available?
A staff member will work with you to schedule your exam at a mutually agreed upon time.
Proctoring services are available:
- Monday - Thursday: 9am - 8:30pm
- Friday - Saturday: 9am-12pm, 3pm-5:30pm
- Sunday: unavailable
The amount of time allotted for your exam will be determined by your school or institution. All exams must be finished thirty minutes prior to the library’s closing.
Tests are administered in the study rooms on the second floor of the library. The proctor does not stay in the room while the test is being taken. Test proctoring is contingent upon staff and room availability. To increase your chances of an appointment with your schedule preference, submit your request with as much advance notice as possible.

How much does it cost?
There is a $10 fee for each exam scheduled for proctoring. Payment will be accepted at the time the exam is administered.
