Makeup and Online Proctored Exams

Testing times are available for students who need to schedule proctored exams for online classes, approved makeup exams, or exams which must be taken outside of regular class time.

Exams MUST be scheduled ahead to ensure we have the correct exam on hand when you arrive. Be prepared to provide photo identification to the proctor before beginning your exam (driver’s license, passport, state-issued ID, student ID). Please remember to bring a photo ID with you to your scheduled exam time.

Exam Policies & Expectations

Before the exam begins, please do the following:

  • Turn off your cell phone and place other personal belongings ( backpacks, etc.) at the front of the room
  • Take any necessary breaks before the exam begins
  • Listen carefully to the proctor, as he/she will clearly state what is and what is not allowed during the exam

Once the exam is underway:

  • Keep noise to a minimum
  • You are expected to stay in the exam room until you finish your exam. If you must leave to use the restroom, tell the proctor in the room or at the front office
  • When you finish your exam, hand it to the proctor in the room or at the front office (if you are being monitored remotely by camera)
  • Please remain quiet and courteous to others still testing while you retrieve your personal belongings
