Free proctoring is offered at Atlantic County Library branches where space and staff are available.
Exams may be written on paper or taken online. The library staff person will ensure that the person taking the exam meets its requirements, such as verifying ID and whether he or she has any accompanying materials. Library staff cannot explain exam questions or provide any guidance to the student during the exam.
Schedule a time to have your exam proctored in advance:
- Please visit or call a branch in advance to reserve space and/or computers if necessary. Proctoring, quiet areas and/or private rooms are not available in some branches.
- Library staff will determine whether they have the available resources to proctor an exam and may decline if they do not have the staff available.
Make all arrangements with the institution giving the exam:
- Contact the institution to be sure that library staff proctoring the exam meet criteria set by the institution. Please note: The staff person proctoring the exam cannot stay with the person taking the exam and so this should not be a requirement by the institution.
- Arrange for delivery of the exam. Library staff cannot make these arrangements for you.
The student is responsible for all delivery costs and arrangements:
- You, or the examining institution, must provide a return envelope addressed to the testing institution and appropriate postage if the exam is to be returned by mail or a pre-paid commercial delivery envelop if being returned through a commercial service.
- The library staff person proctoring the exam will be responsible for mailing the completed exam back to the examining institution and will do so through the U.S. Postal Service at the next regularly scheduled pickup from the library. Exams may be returned through a commercial delivery service if the student makes arrangements for pickup at the library.
- The Atlantic County Library System is not responsible for exams that are returned past deadline. Please allow sufficient days to take the exam and have it mailed back to the institution.
- Any and all financial transactions between the student and the examining institution or delivery service must be made directly between those parties. The library staff is unable to hold or handle any cash or fees. The library cannot issue mailing receipts.
