Distance Learning Proctoring

Test Center staff proctors exams for certain certifications and licensing, as well as for courses taken at other colleges, universities, and entities.

During fall and spring academic sessions, we offer distance learning examinations Monday-Thursday 8:30a.m. - 5:30p.m. and Fridays 8:30a.m. - 1:00p.m. During the summer, we offer distance learning examinations Monday-Thursday.

  • All exams are by appointment only.
  • Candidates should make appointment at least 3 business days in advance to allow the candidate and home institution sufficient time to supply our office with necessary information, paperwork, and materials.
  • The allowed test time must fit within our hours of operation.

Candidates Requesting Accommodations

  • Candidates requesting accommodations should contact the Test Center Operations Manager as soon as possible to discuss their request prior to scheduling any test.
  • Special technology is available for those candidates with documented disabilities requiring accommodations.
  • To ensure we can meet the accommodations requested before the test is scheduled, accommodations must be approved and submitted by the originating university or institution to our office for review.


Proctoring fees are $40.00 per test. No test administered without payment and it must reach our office prior to your appointment. Payment by credit card only. To access online payments click Winthrop University Marketplace. 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 to return tests.

A semester pass may be purchased for $100.00. This pass allows unlimited test proctoring during one semester only. Semester passes run January 5- May 5, May 16-August 15, and August 16-December 15.
