Proctoring Information for UC Students
Testing Services provides proctoring services for UC courses upon professor approval. In order to use UC's Testing Services, your instructor must submit your exam and a completed cover sheet to our office before you may schedule your appointment. Students may register for an appointment in the Testing Services Department. Schedule your exam by selecting "computer-based" or "paper and pencil" exam and then select the correct length of the exam. When you register online, you will be required to pay a non-refundable $25.00 registration/proctoring fee.

Proctoring for Non-UC Students and Faculty
Testing Services serves as a test center for outside schools or institutions that offer online or correspondence courses. These can be taken in our facility as either paper and pencil or online tests. The cost to take a proctored test for non-UC classes is $35 for the first 2 hours of testing and $5 an hour for every hour after that. You can register and pay for your proctoring appointment here. To set up an exam to be proctored by our office, first contact your school or institution to receive permission to take your test at UC. If contact information is needed, provide them with the following information:

It is the test taker's responsibility to ensure that your school or institution sends the test along with detailed proctoring and return instructions. Test takers are responsible for bringing an addressed and stamped envelope or paid courier envelope and label if the test must be mailed back. Testing Services will not cover the cost for return shipping.
Tests may be sent to us via mail, email, USPS, or courier service. Please be advised that USPS estimated times might be delayed by 1 or 2 days since the test must go through our campus mail system. It is your responsibility to make sure the exam materials are received by us in time to meet any exam deadlines put in place by your institution. Please schedule all tests at least 2 days prior to the testing date. Tests must be completed by the time our office closes on the day of testing.
Once you are given permission to take your exam here, you may set up an appointment during our normal Proctored Test Hours. Our registration system can be accessed here. We recommend that you contact us and confirm receipt of the exam prior to your appointment. Be sure to pay close attention to when your test must be received by your institution, and make your appointment with plenty of time to account for test return via the US Postal Service or a courier.
