About Test Proctoring Services

Bloomsburg University’s Testing Center provides test proctoring services to students and community members taking online courses at other colleges or universities who need a local site to take their exams. Tests are only administered on weekdays and non-refundable fees apply.

We are a member of the National College Testing Association's Consortium of College Test Centers - many schools now require an NCTA CCTC member to proctor their exams. See http://www.ncta-testing.org/cctc/ for more information on the Consortium of College Test Centers.

Arrangements with Your School

It is the examinee's responsibility to notify their instructor of the date and time the test will be administered, and to follow up to make sure that BU’s Testing Center has received the exam(s), directions and restrictions information at least one business day prior to the test appointment.

If test materials are to be mailed back to your school and the school does not provide a paid-return envelope, examinees must bring a pre-addressed, pre-paid envelope for materials to be returned to your school.
