Exam Proctoring

Proctors are people who administer college or other institutional exams.

Exam proctoring is available at the Beavercreek, Fairborn and Xenia libraries for students in accredited degree or certificate granting programs.

Conditions for proctoring must be within the library’s service limitations. The student must make an appointment with the designated proctor and reserve a meeting or study room.

Although we don’t charge a fee for this service, we’ll be happy to accept donations on behalf of the Greene County Public Library Foundation.
