Distance Learning Proctoring
The Testing Program staff proctors exams for courses taken at other colleges, universities and entities. These exams may be administered via pencil-paper, computer or other sources.
- All exams are by appointment only.
- Make arrangements in advance. This allows the candidate and home institution sufficient time to supply our office with necessary paperwork and materials.
- Special technology is available for those candidates with documented disabilities requiring accommodations. Requests for accommodations should be discussed prior to scheduling your test.
Registration and Fees
Currently, we offer distance learning examinations Monday-Friday year-round by appointment as long as our department is open and space is available. Registration is required. To begin the registration process, instruct your home institution to contact the Coordinator for Testing Program with necessary information and forms. Once all necessary information is received, testing candidate may schedule the test. The allowed test time must fit within our hours of operation.
Fees are based on the amount of time your professor or test center allows, not on the amount of time you actually take to complete your test. Fees for this service may be paid via check or money order payable to Winthrop University. The fee is due at the time the exam is scheduled. All test fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Any return postage and mailing supplies are the responsibility of the candidate or home institution. Winthrop University is not responsible for any mailing fees.

On Test Day
Arrive ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will not be allowed to take the exam and you will forfeit any fees. A current photo ID must be presented for admittance to the Test Center. Because temperatures vary in the testing rooms, you may want to dress in layers.
Visitors to Winthrop University that desire to park on university property must obtain a visitor parking permit from the Campus Police Department.
