Blinn Exam Proctoring

Student Tester:
If you wish to have a non-Blinn exam proctored in our testing center, please contact your school and professor, first, and obtain any forms or instructions they have for proctored exams. Then, contact the Brenham Learning Center to get the appropriate information and testing instructions. Please use our mailing address or email address above for proctor instructions, exams, and/or forms

Proctoring Fee: If you are not a current Blinn student, there is a fee of $25 per semester. You MUST present a Blinn student ID with the current semester's sticker in order to get the proctor fee waived.

Payment: You pay the proctoring fee at the Enrollment Services counter in the Administration Building during regular business hours and bring the receipt to the Learning Center counter.

Before you come in to test: Call the Learning Center before coming to take your exam to verify that we have received all your testing materials. When we ask for your professor's name, tell us that you are taking a 'correspondence' or 'non-Blinn' exam. The exam will be filled under the student's name.

Testing Procedures: Check in at the Testing Desk. Tell the person at the desk that you are taking a 'correspondence' or 'non-Blinn' exam. You will be allowed to take the exam, if we have your exam materials and instructions and if the deadline has not passed. You will take your exam in our Testing Area, which is separate from the Computer Lab and Tutoring Area. It is proctored by a member of the staff and monitored by cameras and recording equipment. Books, notes, cell phones, MP3 players, food and drinks are NOT allowed in the Testing Area.
