Proctored Testing for Other Institutions

In addition to testing for Oakton courses, the Testing Center at the Skokie campus offers proctoring services for community residents and professionals who need to take a test under the supervision of a college testing office. We administer both paper/pencil and Internet-based tests from schools and professional institutions located throughout the world.

Oakton Community College belongs to the NCTA (National College Testing Association) Consortium of College Testing Centers, and we also subscribe to the NCTA Professional Standards and guidelines.

How to Arrange for an Exam:

  • Students must notify their institution that they want to take a proctored exam at Oakton. Some institutions require a form to be signed by the proctor. Other institutions need only the proctor's information.
  • Students must set up an appointment once the test arrives at Oakton's Testing Center. Tests are administered during our regular office hours listed below under strict security procedures.
