Arranging a Proctored Exam

If you need to schedule a proctored mid-term or final exam for an online class, please email your request to the testing location most convenient to you (see below). If you live far from one of these locations, please contact a testing center closer to you to arrange a proctored test. All Ranger College testing locations provide secure, accessible, and comprehensive testing services for our students and community members. The identity of each tester will be verified by a photo ID prior to testing

Schedule Testing at All Campuses


Students who are unable to visit a proctoring center may use the online ProctorU service. The student is responsible for any fees charged by ProctorU.
