Exam Proctoring

Exam proctoring is temporarily unavailable. Learn more about how we're protecting public health.

A proctored exam is a test taken under supervision. If you're a student in a distance learning course, your school or institution may require a proctor to monitor you when taking exams. 

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

Read the policies below to check whether the library's service limitations for proctoring fit the needs of your exam.

You must schedule exam proctoring in advance. Please make an appointment with a proctor and reserve a library meeting or study room.
