The Testing Center offers proctoring services for on ground course make up exams and for Montco students with documented disabilities who require testing accommodations at our Pottstown and Blue Bell Testing Centers, located within the Library.

Proctor Services for Students

If you need to schedule an exam at the Testing Center, your instructor will submit a request for proctoring services. Once this request is submitted, the Testing Center will send instructions to your College email account on how to schedule your exam.

Schedule your appointment in advance. This will allow our team to prepare any materials needed for your exam prior to your arrival. We will make every effort to accommodate your requested appointment time; however, in some cases, your instructor may set strict requirements. Details will be communicated to you within the instructions.

Once your appointment has been scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email.
