Exam Proctoring General Information

Important Notice:  *** Our proctoring service is on hold, we hope to resume sometime in the Fall but currently do not have an ETA. We recommend finding another proctoring location. ***




We offer proctoring services for tests 3 hours or less that are from U.S. institutions. We charge $25/hour which is payable by check only at the time you take the test. Additionally, if the test needs to be mailed back to the institution and prepaid shipping is not provided then the test taker is responsible for the shipping fee. Bring either a $5 fee for standard USPS shipping or a Prepaid Fed Ex envelope.

Making an Appointment:

  1. Request the test be sent to us by email, fax, or mail (which ever is easier). 
  2. Once received, contact us by phone to schedule an appointment.
  3. Appointments are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis, we are unable to guarantee particular dates and times.
