Frequently Asked Questions
What qualifies as a Distance Learning Exam?
The Testing Center is available to proctor in-person exams from other universities and colleges; such as the University of North Dakota (UND), Southwestern Illinois College, Missouri State, and many others. We have served as a proctor for employment screening, PhD qualifying exams, in addition to undergraduate and graduate online class exams. You will want to verify with your university the requirements to take your exams at the Missouri S&T Testing Center. Many colleges and universities require students to fill out a proctor request form.
