The following guidelines have been established to make the proctored testing process as easy as possible. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please read more about our frequently asked questions.
Preparing for Your Test
While reading modules, there are online self-quizzes to assess your understanding of the content read in the chapters. Remember to bookmark this address for future use.
Choosing a Proctor
Students are required to arrange for their own proctors and test locations. During your conversation with prospective proctors, be sure to let them know you are allotted two hours to complete the exam.
An acceptable proctor may be:
- Directors, coordinators, or their representatives at a university or junior college in the counseling or educational services department
- Registrars, deans, or professors at a university or junior college
- High school principals or counselors
- Certified librarians in a supervisory position
- Local directors of educational services
- A designated representative from your credit union league office
Your proctor CANNOT be someone from your credit union.
Fees associated with a proctor and testing are the responsibility of the student. If the testing is conducted during regular business hours, there is often only a minimal charge, if any. Be sure to consult with the proctor and testing facility in advance about the fees.
For most programs, you can choose to take either a paper test or take the test online.
