  • No cell phones, smart watches, or other electronic devices are permitted in the exam room. Please leave your cell phone in your vehicle, or with the Exam Supervisor before entering the room.
  • Students may arrive earlier than their scheduled time, but cannot stay past the closing time.
  • Please ensure that you allow yourself enough time to complete an exam or quiz as the testing centre hours WILL NOT be extended for any reason.

photo identification

Government-Issued Photo ID is required for all students at the Testing Centre. The Government-Issued Photo ID must be no more than 5 years old. School-issued photo ID will not be accepted in the Testing Centre.

online testing

Online testing is now available in some courses. This gives students the flexibility and convenience to write their midterm and final exams from an alternate location. Students will use remote proctor software with their computer's webcam to securely write their exams.


There is a nominal fee per exam (paid directly to the exam proctoring service), however, many students find this worthwhile given the convenience and savings on travel costs. Students will want to ask their individual teachers if this is an option in their courses.
