Proctored Testing for Online Courses

The Testing Centers at Howard College in Big Spring, Lamesa, SWCD, and San Angelo offer test proctoring for students taking online courses. Each facility includes seats for computer-based testing and desks for paper exams. With the exception of calculators, as required by an instructor, no other electronic device is allowed in the Testing Center at any time. Non-essential personal items can be stored by the testing center at the Owner’s risk.

All examinees will be required to present a non-expired state or federal government ID or a current school-issued ID prior to being admitted into the testing room.

The cost for testing is $15 per exam and must be paid in advance through the Business Office.

*This testing fee may be waived if the exam is for a Howard College course and the student is a registered Howard College student.

Availability is not guaranteed until the student makes an appointment for a specific time and date.

Note: ADA Accommodations requests must be approved first by a Howard College ADA Coordinator and then by the instructor before scheduling with the Testing Center. Any accommodations beyond additional time require special staffing and must be arranged well in advance. It is the student’s responsibility to make those arrangements in a timely fashion.
