Seating Availability
Test proctoring is by appointment only. The Test Center is sometimes reserved by groups for private use. At these times proctoring services will not be available. The Test Center is also used for placement testing, so seating is often very limited near the beginning and end of the semester. A calendar with private use and compass testing schedules is available at the bottom of this page for your convenience (subject to change without notice). Please schedule your proctoring request early.

Need to take a proctored academic exam?
We proctor exams for UH System students and Non-UH students. It is the student's responsibility to make arrangements with your school and us and to verify your materials have been received before arriving to take your exams. Please allow ample time to complete your exams within Test Center hours. Students must present a valid photo ID for tests to be administered.
  • For UH System courses, our services are offered free of charge. Please contact us with (1) your name, (2) a contact number, (3) your course (like "SUBJect 245"), (4) your instructor's name, and (5) date & time you'd like to have your exam proctored. We'll either confirm your request or offer other available times.
  • For Non-UH courses, the fee is $25 per hour (min $25/test) plus $25 for each fraction of an hour after the first hour. For example, 1 hour and 1-60 min = $50 fee; 2 hours & 1-60 min = $75 fee, etc. If your materials need to be mailed back, there is a nominal fee for postage and envelope. Payments are by check or cash only.

Received Exams List (Not maintained during Summer Session)
We'll post the exam parameters as we get them. However, sometimes things get busy, so please don't wait until the day before your exam to check. You may call us at 245-8306 to check if your proctoring instructions have been received. Remember, you need to tell your distance learning instructor where you are. Otherwise, they won't know where to send their instructions.
