  • Be on time.
  • Bring your driver’s license or photo ID to your proctoring session. The name on the exam must match the identification.

During & After Your Session

  • A librarian will be scheduled to proctor all exams, however, the proctor who begins supervising the exam may be replaced by another before your test is over.
  • Due to the nature of a library, we cannot guarantee a quiet place or continuous monitoring throughout the exam. You will be in sight of the proctor and the proctor will check on you periodically. Library services takes priority over test proctoring.
