Test Proctoring

To have an exam proctored, pick up a purple testing form at the Student Success Center and bring it to your professor to fill out. Bring the form and your Student ID to The SSC when you are ready to take your test. Tests are proctored in the Student Success Center room 106. Proctoring is done at the discretion of the professor, so it is important to discuss it with your instructor first.

  • Sunday: 7:00-10:00 p.m.
  • Monday-Thursday: 5:00-10:00 p.m.
  • Friday: 1:00-5:00 p.m.
