Some ACC faculty require you to have your course exams proctored. For regular academic testing, your instructor will determine which method to proctor you by. Remote proctoring is available through the Distance Education department for fully online courses (ONL mode). Limited proctored testing is available at the Testing Center for makeup tests, incompletes, challenge (CLEP) exams, and Student Accessibility Services (SAS) testing. Check your syllabus for testing policies.
