The Assessment Center offers online scheduling and payment of proctored exams, for students attending another college who need to have a test proctored.

Students are responsible for ensuring that their participating college or university accepts the SPSCC Assessment Center as a proctor and is able to send the exam to us in time for your scheduled appointment. This includes any proctor verification forms your institution may require.

If the exam is a paper and pencil exam, allow up to 10 days for shipping, unless your institution provides expedited shipping.

Candidates register and pay for exams at RegisterBlast.
