  • Once approved, you will receive confirmation of approval
  • It is your responsibility to follow up on your request and ensure exam information has been sent

If you submit a form for a window with a deadline that has passed, it will be denied.
Your only other available options will be
to take your proctored exam(s)
at an MDC Testing Center or via ProctorU


The proctor can be a Testing Department/Center at a regionally accredited college or university (preferred), faculty members of regionally accredited colleges or universities, high school counselors and principals, human resources and educational training staff members, commercial testing centers such as Sylvan and Kaplan, and military educational officers. 

Proctors must have an institution/organization/company email address, as the Virtual College prohibits the sending of exam information and passwords to free or residential email address, including, but not limited to:,,,,,,,,, etc.

Your classmate, manager/supervisor, co-worker, relative, or friend is NOT a qualified proctor, and may NOT proctor your exams. 

Exams must be administered in an educational or professional environment, such as a classroom or the proctor's office. Any test proctored in a private residence will be deemed invalid. Virtual College proctored exams are computer exams; therefore, make sure that your proctor is able to administer computer-based exams. 

Be sure to provide accurate contact information for your proctor, as well as accurate course information. Inaccurate or incomplete information may lead to a delay in approval and may result in your request being denied. You must submit your request before the posted deadlines to allow enough time to approve your proctor. 

The MDC Virtual College will have final approval on proctor selection.
