As a service to persons who are taking independent study courses and/or distance education courses through other institutions or entities, the Testing Office does provide proctoring services when those programs require the administration of exams in a supervised setting.

Please note the following guidelines:

  • Arrangements must be made in advance, preferably 2 – 3 weeks.  This enables the institution/program sending the test and any additional materials ample time to get them to the Testing Office.
  • Independent/proctored exams are administered at various time on a weekday, mutually convenient to both the examinee and the UWG Academic Testing Office.  Under certain circumstances, the time frame may be changed.
  • The fee for proctoring an independent study exam is $15, payable by check or cash when the examinee arrives to take the test.
  • Appointments are made by contacting the Testing Office by phone: 678-839-6435 or by email: testwest@westga.edu.  At the time the appointment is made, the following information must be provided: name of examinee, name of course, format of test (paper/pencil or computer-based), first choice of testing date and time, and the name of the institution or program sending the exam. Academic Testing Services strictly enforces a 48-hour in advance policy to schedule testing appointments with us. This policy means that you will need to schedule at least 48 hours prior to your exam time (excluding weekends). We strongly encourage that you contact us to schedule all of your testing appointments prior to the deadline date for your exam, based on the recurring times of testing sessions.
  • When the examinee arrives at the Testing Office in Strozier Hall for the testing appointment, photo identification must be presented. This photo ID may be a driver’s license, an employee work badge, or the student ID from the examinee’s home institution.
