*There may be a fee associated with off-campus testing. Students will be responsible for any fees associated with off-campus testing.

What to Expect After Submitting a Request

The process for approving requests may take up to 3 days (or more) depending on the responsiveness of the proposed proctor. Choosing a pre-approved proctor may help expedite this process.

*No exam material will be sent to your proctor until your request is approved by DELTA Testing Services and the proctor. 

We strive to send out all materials 2-3 business days prior to each test, but this is always subject to change as we may not receive materials that far in advance.

After submitting your request, you may check the status of your request online. Please allow 72 hours for updates.
