What is an External Proctored Test?

An external proctored test is an in-person test that is administered by a proctor. A proctor is a person who will supervise you while you are taking your exam, to ensure academic integrity.

We proctor exams for distance learning students attending other colleges and universities as well as business and community-related exams. We are an active member of the National College Testing Association
