GUIDELINES

  • To arrange to have an exam proctored, the student will fill out and submit the online application. (clickable here) A librarian will contact the student to make an appointment to meet and fill out the necessary paperwork required by the student’s school. The student has to complete any preliminary paperwork at least one week before the date of the exam.
  • Students who show up for proctoring without appointments will not be considered.
  • Exams will be proctored during regular library hours.
  • Proctors may not be able to monitor a student continuously during an exam, but will check on him/her periodically. The library cannot guarantee that a quiet study room will be provided.
  • Proctors will enforce any time limits that are placed on the exam, as well as any other rules set forth in the examination materials. The use of cell phones or consultation with others is prohibited. The proctor will collect cell phones for the duration of the test. Any perceived violation of exam rules will be reported to the educational institution.
  • Exams must be completed at least 15 minutes before the library closes.
  • All exams should be either mailed to the North Brunswick Library,

  • Any exams not taken as scheduled will be held for two weeks and then returned to the school.
  • Librarians cannot proctor exams that students bring in themselves.
  • The North Brunswick Library will keep answer sheets on file for two weeks after the test has been taken. It will then be shredded.
