(At this time, $25.00 proctoring fees must be paid in the Bursar's Office.  We apologize for this inconvenience)

BRCC faculty who wish to have their students take a make-up test should have their students schedule an appointment using the online scheduler. You will need to deliver the assessment instrument (test, etc.) to a Testing Center staff member with completion instructions. The Testing Center is not to be used to have entire classes of students take tests. You should contact the Registrar for an appropriate room if you are looking to administer computer testing.
