Exam Proctoring

Limited exam proctoring services for written and online examinations is provided free of charge by the library. This service is based on the availability of personnel, facilities, and technology and must not compromise other library services. The library reserves the right to refuse to proctor exams in instances where it interferes with library operations or in cases where they are deemed unreasonable or burdensome to administer. Proctors are able to enforce time limits for exams, but are unable to monitor students one-on-one continuously during an exam. Students requesting proctor services must present a valid picture identification card (student I.D. or official government issued I.D.). Students who do not show up for a scheduled examination on more than one occasion will not have further tests proctored at the library. 

Please contact the Branch Manager at either location to set up exam proctoring.

Northeast Branch, (318) 476-3280
