The Academic Proctoring Center
An appointment is required to take an exam in the Academic Proctoring Center! During finals week we will be testing out of many different rooms. Review the information below to find out where your exam will be taking place.
PLEASE NOTE: NO SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS AND SAME DAY APPOINTMENT CHANGES ALLOWED.
The Academic Proctoring Center provides a supervised testing site for:
- Students referred by the Disabled Student Programs and Services department for testing with extended time.
- Students with a critical need who have their instructor’s authorization to take a make-up exam. Make up exams are not guaranteed, but a courtesy service provided to faculty if space and time allow. Please note: MAKE-UP EXAMS ARE NOT AVAILABLE DURING FINAL EXAM WEEK (Summer finals are July 18th - July 23rd for six week courses and August 1st- August 5th for eight week courses).
- Students taking courses from another institution that need to take proctored exams. This service is provided as space and time permits (Please see Proctored Exam For Non Students).
The APC does not currently proctor exams for classes meeting on-ground (except as noted in #2 and #3 above), or exams that involve the use of specialized computer programs, oral components or lab activities.
