Proctored Exams

The Testing Services Office proctors exams for many outside colleges, universities and certifying bodies.  Proctoring services are available for paper/pencil and computer based test formats. Proctored exams are available by appointment only. It is recommended that you make your appointment 1-2 weeks in advance of your test date to insure that your exam materials and/or online access information arrives at our testing center in time. There is a $26 proctoring fee for each exam taken at our site. Proctored exam appointments are available Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 2:00pm. NOTE: Proctored exams will not be available November 26th-27th, December 7th-18th.

Steps to Take a Proctored Exam 

  1. Go to and complete registration. You will only need to complete registration once. 
  2. After you have registered, log in and select the Proctored Exam Appointment schedule.  You will be directed to the scheduling page.  (Note that you will not be able to schedule an appointment for the current day).
  3. If your exam will require the use of a computer, select the day and time next to "Proctored Exam with Computer". If not, select the day and time next to "Proctored Exam-Paper/Pencil."
  4. Answer the questions about your exam appointment. Be sure to attach any necessary forms that need to be filled out by our test center.
  5. You will be contacted by Testing Services with any initial questions.
  6. Notify the institution you are attending to submit the exam to the Testing Services office either by email attachment or mail. Fax is not recommended. Email:; mail: Testing Services, Onondaga Community College, 4585 W. Seneca Tnpk, Syracuse, NY 13215.
  7. Cost: There is a $26 fee for each exam proctored even if multiple exams are taken on the same day. For example, a student taking two tests on the same day must pay a proctoring fee of $52. The proctoring fee must be paid at the Student Accounts Office located in the Gordon Student Center Lobby. Bring the proctoring fee receipt with you on the day of your appointment to show proof of payment. It is recommended that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to make payment. Note: All transactions for proctoring fees are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another date or exam.
  8. The Testing Services Office will contact you to confirm your appointment once your exam is received and will give you further instructions regarding your appointment if necessary.  
  9. The Testing Services Office is located on the main floor of the Gordon Student Center, just off of the lobby. There is ample signage to direct you to our waiting area but if you are unsure, ask the representative at the welcome desk for assistance. A proctor will meet you in the waiting area to get you started on your exam.
  10. If you are a student with a documented disability, you must make arrangements with your institution for test accommodations.  Accommodations will not be granted without the express permission of the institution you will be testing for.
