If you are enrolled in a distance learning and/or on-line course and need to have your exams proctored, we invite you to use our services at the UMass Boston Testing Center. Proctoring arrangements must be made in advance and are subject to our availability.
As a member of the National College Testing Association and a participant of the Consortium of College Testing Centers, UMass Boston adheres to their professional guidelines for proctoring paper based and computer based exams. We are pleased to offer our professional proctoring services to the general public, such as other educational institutions and private corporations.
An administrative proctoring fee of $25.00 is required for each exam that is up to two hours in length. Exams that require additional time or multiple copies or faxes are subject to a higher rate. The proctoring fee is non-refundable and must be received on the day of the exam either by check or money order made payable to UMass Boston. International exams are charged a basic rate of $40.00 a piece, and advance registration is required with a deposit. Private courier charges are paid by the examinee at the conclusion of the examinations.
Contact the Test Administrator, Julie Sanabria to schedule an appointment and make suitable arrangements. After your appointment is confirmed, your school or company must send the exams directly to the Testing Center. Exams should include instructions for the proctor and any forms to be completed and returned to the instructor. We do not provide return mailing for exams. If your school or company does not provide return postage for a paper-and pencil exam, you are responsible for postage. Please bring with you a postage paid, USPS Priority Mail envelope.
All students are required to produce photo identification upon testing. The following are acceptable forms of ID: Driver's license, State ID, Passport, or Student ID.
