Exam Preparation

Students who wish to take tests at a site other than Sauk Valley Community College must have initial approval from their instructor and an approved proctor to administer their exams. It is the responsibility of the student to work with their instructor to secure an acceptable proctoring location and that both the Proctor and Student Rules Agreements are submitted to the Sauk Valley Testing Center. It is highly suggested that the student begins this process as soon as possible. The Testing Center works only as the facilitator between student, proctor and instructor.
