Distance Education students are required to take at least one proctored exam in order to verify student identity. Some courses require multiple proctored exams. Although we make every effort to accommodate distance education students with low cost or no cost test proctoring services, students who are unable to take exams at either of the NW-SCC campus testing centers will be responsible for any charges incurred at remote test proctor sites and will pay any required fees directly to these sites in addition to the cost of any required equipment and services such as webcam/microphone and high-speed Internet connection. Please contact the NW-SCC Distance Education Office at 256.331.5395 if you need assistance or have questions about using a remote proctor.
