Proctored Exam Forms must be submitted no later than 3 business days prior to the day of your test. Any requests that are submitted after 4 PM on Fridays will not be processed until the following Monday.
If you live outside the Edison State College area and are unable to come to ESC for tests required for your Edison Online course, you must identify a proctor, that is, someone authorized to conduct the test for you.
The proctor must be:
- A testing center administrator or staff member at a university, college, community college
- A professional test administrator at a professional testing center.
Your tests must be administered in the testing center of a university, college, community college, or professional testing center during normal business hours.
All proctors must agree to:
- Maintain the security of the test by keeping it in a protected environment.
- Verify the identification of the examinee (Photo ID with signature - No exceptions).
- Administer the test in a secure, proctored setting.

- All materials used by the student during testing shall be collected.

When you have identified a test proctor, complete the Test Proctor Form for each exam you will need proctored. You will be responsible for any fees the testing center may charge.
