Testing Center

The BGSU Testing Center provides secure test-proctoring services for qualifying BGSU students. Services are currently limited to students that receive academic accommodations through BGSU Accessibility Services for extended test time or a space with limited distractions. Other requests for exam proctoring are handled on a case-by-case basis (i.e. make-up exams, Math Placement exams).

Proctored testing is available by appointment. To arrange an appointment, please complete the following steps.

  1. Discuss with your professor and remind them of your accommodations (if applicable). Find out if your professor will provide your approved accommodations or if you will need to make arrangements with the Testing Center. If you will be coming to the Testing Center for the exam, you will need to know when you are allowed to take the exam. Your professor may have requirements on the date(s) or time(s) that you will be permitted to take the exam. Exam proctoring hours are Monday – Friday, 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM. All exams must be completed by 7:00 PM.
  2. Schedule an appointment at least 72 hours in advance of the test time to make your appointment. Schedule your appointment online. Choose an available seat depending on if you will need to use one of our computers or not for the exam. Select a start time for the exam, then scroll down to select an ending time for your exam appointment. Submit your times, then enter your course name, instructor name, and instructor email address. Attach a copy of your exam accommodation letter (if you have one), and include any pertinent information in the "Comments" box (i.e. is it a make-up exam, any special needs). Then submit your booking.
  3. Communicate your appointment booking with your professor. They will provide the Testing Center with your exam and exam instructions prior to the exam. They will receive an email from the Testing Center as well requesting this information.
  4. Respond to any correspondence from the Testing Center regarding your appointment. We may have additional questions or have specific information to relay to you.

Bring your BGSU student ID. Please be sure to arrive promptly for your appointment. The end of your appointment cannot be extended.

Please note, personal belongings cannot accompany you into the Testing Center for your exam. You will be provided a lock and key and directed to the bay of lockers down the hall from the testing room. All of your belongings, save anything that is permitted for the exam, must be left in the locker.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact us at testcenter@bgsu.edu, or call us at 419-372-1313.
