Test Proctoring

Test proctoring is provided as a service to faculty and students.

The primary goal is to assist faculty in their efforts to provide testing accommodations for students with disabilities. The Activities and Resource Center (ARC) will also proctor tests for students with special circumstances such as excused absences. The ARC cannot proctor tests for entire classes and test proctoring is by appointment only.

Testing Location: Activities and Resource Center, 1st Floor Kendall Building, two testing rooms available.

Testing Center Hours for Fall, Spring and Summer Semesters: Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 5:00pm (exams must be finished by 5:00pm)
