All online courses are required to give 1 or 2 proctored exams. You MUST make arrangements to come to the scheduled date and time your instructor has indicated for the exams. Only in emergency cases will you be allowed to take an exam at an alternate time with a NWCC approved proctor. The NWCC approved proctor is only located on the Senatobia Campus.

Where Do I go to take my test?

The eLearning Proctor tests every weekday from 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM on the Senatobia Campus in the Tate building lab 201. To test with the eLearning Proctor you have to make an appointment.

What do I need to bring to my test?

You MUST have a photo ID at the time of testing or you will not be allowed to take the exam. You need to bring any extra materials you may need for your exam (pencil, calculator, headphones, etc.).

How do I schedule an appointment?

Your instructor will announce a date, time, and location for your tests. If you want to test at the date and time your instructor provided, you need to send an email to your instructor letting them know you plan to attend that testing session.

If you cannot test with your instructor you can test with the eLearning Proctor. Please remember to schedule an appointment with the eLearning proctor only if you cannot take the exam at the date, time and location your instructor has scheduled.
