You have the option to take your exam at any of these times and on any of these days during that designated weekend. There is a two hour time limit for each exam.  Under no circumstance will any student have unlimited time for testing.  Do not bring children to the testing campus.

If you are taking more than one course: We strongly recommend that you take only one test per day. However, if you must take more than one test per day, please note these two (2) things:

  1. You can only pick up one test at a time and you must pick up your last test no later than the last admittance time.

  2. This means that you must be aware of the time and allow yourself an equal amount of time for each exam.  You must pick up the second exam by 7:00 pm on Fridays, and by 1:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.  The testing aides will not remind you to do so or issue exams after these times for anyone, even if you have what you believe to be a perfectly good excuse as to why you are late (flat tire, emergency, etc.).

A picture ID (driver's license or HCCS ID) is required before you will be allowed to test.


Do not bring books unless otherwise noted by instructor

Phones and pagers must be turned off and put away in the testing location

Do not bring children to testing

Proctored Exams

Taking an exam if you live outside of the HCC service area.

Online learners outside of the HCC service area follow the same admissions policies/ procedures as all HCC students.

Students living out of the HCC service area during the semester in which they are enrolled at HCC in online classes need to make special arrangements to accommodate their needs.

In the event the course requires onsite exams, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a proctor. The proctor must be someone in the testing center at a local community college or at a university. The proctor will need to provide a secure testing environment and possibly (depending on the course) a computer with Internet access.

A valid picture ID must be presented to the proctor when taking the exam. All fees associated with proctoring are the responsibility of the student. Exams will be sent via fax, email, or US mail directly to the proctor with instructions for administering the exams. This will be done at no cost to the student; however, the student WILL BE responsible for fees associated with returning the exams (including costs of overnight express, etc. to meet deadlines).

  • The proctor approval form MUST be completed and approved at least 2 weeks prior to the first scheduled exam. For additional questions, you may contact us by email at hcc.online@hccs.edu.
