Northeast Mississippi Community College uses proctored exams to ensure the integrity of student work. All students may schedule proctored exams at the college at no cost. Virtual proctor options are available at the student’s cost. Cost varies based on test duration and appointment date verification.

In a situation where a student is unable to come to campus, he/she may make his or her own testing arrangements. These arrangements must be approved at least 5 business days in advance by the eLearning Office. The application for Off-Campus proctoring may be completed by filling out the form below. If a student makes their own testing arrangements at another location that student will be responsible for any cost incurred for testing.

Students who attend an out-of-state university or community college will be charged a $25 testing fee per exam to test at any Northeast Mississippi Community College e-Learning facility.  The fee must be paid prior to beginning the examination.  Students who attend a community college or university within Mississippi will continue to be tested at no charge.
