Proctoring Services

Proctoring Services refers to requests made by students or members of the community to have exams proctored from institutions other than Butte College.

  • Appointment required
  • We proctor online & paper/pencil exams
  • Fee based service 

Please follow the 4 steps below.

Step 1: Make a Request

Please contact the Regional Testing Center (RTC) in advance to determine whether we can accommodate your proctoring request. You must have an appointment, we do not take walk-ins.

**The RTC on the Main Campus will accommodate requests based on space, time, and proctor availability.**

You will need to provide us with:

-The institution’s name
-Your contact information
-Amount of time needed for the exam
-Format of the exam (e.g. online or paper/pencil)
-Any additional materials/equipment you may need
-Date & Time you are requesting

Step 2: Testing Materials

After you have made initial contact with RTC, arrange with your educational institution for your testing materials to be emailed or delivered to our office.

Be sure to make this request well in advance to ensure your testing materials are received before the day of your appointment.

Step 3: Test Day

A Photo I.D. is required for all exams.

Each institution has their own testing requirements, we will follow the instructions they provide. Come prepared per your institution’s requirements.

The proctor fee will be due on test day.
Fees are typically $40.00 per test. We accept cash (we do not provide change) or check payments. Please make checks payable to Butte College.

We do not provide postage/envelopes; see Step 4 for more info.

Cell phones, iPods, music players, or anything else electronic are not permitted in the test room.

No food or drinks permitted in the test room.

Step 4: After Your Test

The process for mailing/shipping of your test materials back to the educational institution they were received from is arranged on an individual basis per their requirements. Some institutions provide a postage paid envelope, others require you provide postage. If you bring an envelope make sure it is at least 81/2 x 11 to accommodate test materials which cannot be folded. Test materials will not be mailed without proper envelope & postage.

Special requests for fed-ex drop off or expedited shipping must be arranged when you make your initial request.

We are not permitted to release testing materials to students for mailing/shipping.
