In order for the independent study exams or the distance learning course exams to be proctored at Georgia Gwinnett College, the candidates must adhere to following procedures.
- Contact GGC Testing Services at 678.407.5322 or email GGCTesting@ggc.edu to gain permission to have exam proctored at Georgia Gwinnett College.
- If the director of testing services approves proctoring, then the candidate submits as the point of contact the name, title of proctor, college name, web address, email address, mailing address, and phone number to their home institution or agency for approval.
- After the candidate’s home institution or agency approves the exam proctoring venue at GGC, then the secure paper exam is sent to the director of testing services via air express or USPS mail or the CBT exam passwords are emailed to the director of testing services.
- After all approvals have been made and agreed upon by the home institution or agency and Georgia Gwinnett College, the testing appointment is made by the candidate.
- Prior to the exam proctoring session, the candidate pays the proctoring fee directly to the student accounts office in Building D (Student Services).
- On the day of their exam, the candidate comes to testing services in Building A and brings their payment receipt and photo identification from their college, employer, or government agency.
- The candidate’s signature and photo identification must match.
- The candidate’s photo ID is collected and held until all exam materials are returned to the proctor.
- Once the exam is finished and all exam materials are returned, the candidate’s photo ID is returned to them.
- The test proctor verifies that the exam was proctored under secure conditions and that the candidate was monitored at all times and did not use unauthorized materials or receive outside help during the exam. The signed proctor’s document is returned with the exam materials to the candidate’s home institution or agency.
