Test Proctoring for New Students

There are times when we ask professors to implement accommodations that they may not be able to provide on their own. Additional time, a quiet room, and a computer are examples of accommodations that professors may have difficulty providing on their own. When this happens, professors may choose to send you to the SDRC to take your exams.

You should assist your professors in making this decision during your appointment to deliver your Accommodation Letter.

Test Proctoring Requirements:

Schedule your testing room at least 48 business hours in advance of the day and time the class is taking the exam; this means a full 48 hour period (business days) before the test. Please use the Exam Request Form found HERE to schedule your exams.  All tests and final exams taken at the SDRC must be scheduled using the online form.  Final exams must be scheduled at least one week before the first day of finals.  All exams must be taken at the same day/time as the class unless the instructor/professor has given written approval at least 24 hours in advance of the exam.  (Emails sent to the following email address: sdrc@georgiasouthern.edu from the instructor’s/professor’s email address is considered written permission.)

Please make sure to bring your picture I.D. with you when you come to take a test at our Test Proctoring Center. Arrive on time to take the exam; your time to complete the exam begins at the scheduled time – if you are late, that time may be deducted from the time you’re allowed for the exam; if you are more than 30 minutes late, you may not be allowed to take the exam until we receive permission from the professor

It is your responsibility to make sure your testing accommodations are in place. Your professors have the option to provide adequate accommodations; taking your tests at the SDRC is left to the professor’s discretion.
