What is a Proctored Exam?
Students who do not live in TCC's service area of Leon, Gadsden or Wakulla Counties, and choose not to come to the main campus Testing Center, will need to find someone to proctor their exams. Many colleges and universities have Testing Centers which allow students from other schools to take tests. There may be a fee incurred while taking exams. Students are responsible for return postage for completed exams. Also, students need to make sure they can take their exams during the Testing Center's scheduled hours.
Note: It is imperative that students set up their proctors within the first two weeks of the semester. The Testing Center cannot make last-minute proctor arrangements.
Proctors are individuals who are responsible for supervising you as you take an exam. Proctors are needed to ensure educational integrity while the student is taking the exam. Examples of acceptable proctors are:
- College testing center personnel
- Military Education Officer
- Private Testing Service Business; For example: Sylvan Learning Center
Relatives, friends, or co-workers are NOT eligible to proctor exams. If you have questions about proctor arrangements, call (850) 201-8282. The Testing Center maintains an active list of proctors. You can find a proctor by seeing the attached list or filling out a "Proctor Registration Form" at least three days prior to taking the exam.
