LCSC Students - Proctored Exams

The LCSC Campus Testing Center offers test proctoring services to LCSC students.  There is no charge for an LCSC student to take a LCSC class proctored exam at the LCSC Testing Center.  Students must make an appointment 1 business day in advance, except during the pre-determined walk-in times, which are subject to availability.  View the Testing Center schedule.

Appointments can be made by stopping in to the Testing Center in Library Room 161, calling 208-792-2100, or filling out the appointment request form.

Some LCSC instructors require their exams be proctored. Proctors ensure the reliability of exam results by validating the identity of the person taking the exam, monitoring the testing environment, and ensuring the security of the exam itself.

Local Students

If an LCSC student is local and able to travel to campus, they will test in the Testing Center located in the Library building room 161. The Testing Center requires all students to show a current photo ID issued by LCSC or a city/state/federal government agency before being allowed to take an exam. 

Distance students

An LCSC student can make an appointment with one of our preapproved outreach centers.  Contact the Outreaech Center closest to you for an appointment.  No contact with the campus Testing Center is required when using an Outreach Center.

An LCSC student who cannot travel to the campus Testing Center, or an Outreach Center, can arrange to take their exams by requesting a qualified individual who meets the required Proctor Qualifications.  Students are not allowed to use their own personal computers or laptops for proctored exams. The proctor must provide a computer for the student to use for the exam and the exam must be proctored in a professional setting.

Even if a proctor was previously approved, students must submit a Proctor Request Form for each exam.

If a qualified individual agrees to proctor a student’s exam, the student must submit the Proctor Request Form. The Testing Center evaluates the form and, if approved, sends the appropriate testing materials to the proctor using the email provided on the Proctor Request Form 3 business days before the appointment date listed on the form.

Arrangements with the proctor must be made, which includes submitting the Proctor Request Form, at least one week in advance of the exam opening date.
