Test Proctoring Services

The SCC Testing Center is pleased to offer test proctoring for students who are taking online classes at other institutions. Online classes often require students to take exams that are administered in person by an approved proctor.

How can I request and schedule a test proctor?
To schedule testing at the Jackson Campus, please call or email Jody Woodring at 828.339.4332 or j_woodring[at]southwesterncc[dot]edu. To schedule testing at the Macon Campus, please call or email Kristan Blanton at 828.306.7017 or k_blanton[at]southwesterncc[dot]edu.

A proctored testing appointment must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Ability to schedule proctored tests is determined by the availability of testing center staff and testing lab. Student is responsible to ensure testing materials arrive no later than 48 hours before the scheduled test.

Who can have a test proctored? 
Proctored testing is available for students not enrolled at SCC. Some students may be dual enrolled students meaning they are taking courses at SCC and another institution. In this case, we can proctor the tests for non-SCC courses. Students who need test proctoring for SCC courses should contact the Learning Assistance Center at 828.339.4325 (Jackson Campus) or 828.306.7028 (Macon Campus).

What tests can you administer?
We can proctor tests in almost any format as per the requirements of the test. We can provide the proctor service for paper/pencil test, computer-based testing and web-based tests.

What is the charge for the proctoring service?
For non-SCC students the cost is $25 per test. For alumni and former SCC students the cost is $10 per test. These fees are payable by credit/debit card, cash, or money order to the Cashier's Office at the Jackson Campus or by cash (exact change required) at the Macon Campus Testing Center. A receipt must be presented to the Testing Center staff prior to testing.

What are the guidelines for test proctoring at SCC? 
Students taking a test proctored by SCC must: present valid photo identification and must provide any allowable equipment and materials required for the test. A proctor will monitor the student at all times.  All testing guidelines provided to the testing proctor by the requesting institution will be followed.
