Students must check their syllabus/calendar/course information, etc. to verify any significant details and the midterm/final exam window.
Most Virtual College courses require 1 or 2 proctored tests. Students may take these tests at MDC Testing Centers with no charge. However, out of area students who use remote proctors and students who elect to use technology supported testing are responsible for charges for such services.
Miami Dade College has eight testing centers available for Virtual College students. Plan accordingly and select the most convenient testing center.
Please note: MDC Campus testing centers are NOT run by Virtual College staff; therefore, if you have any concerns before your exam, you must contact your professor. While the testing department proctors exams, the testing staff has no knowledge of the contents of your exam and is not authorized to make any changes, give time extensions or answer any questions about your exam.
If you are a Virtual College student who lives outside the South Florida area, you must locate an approved proctor to administer your tests. The proctor must be approved by the Virtual College at least 2 weeks prior to the exam. Students are responsible for paying any costs that may be incurred (proctor fees, etc.).
The proctor can be one of the following:
A student's classmate, co-worker, relative or friend is NOT a qualified proctor and may not proctor exams.
Examinations must be administered in an educational or professional environment such as a classroom or the proctor's office. Exams are web-based; therefore, the proctoring facility must have a computer with internet access. Any test proctored in a private residence will be deemed invalid. The Virtual College will have final approval on proctor selection.
The Virtual College has selected ProctorU to offer students an option when taking proctored tests. ProctorU monitors tens of thousands of online exams for over 200 partner institutions using webcams and screen-sharing technology. ProctorU allows students to take exams anytime during the testing window of the online course. Given that so many of our students are working, having ProctorU as an approved proctor gives students the flexibility and convenience of taking their exams at home, at work or while traveling.

Once you decide to take your proctored exam with ProctorU, visit and follow the steps listed in our ProctorU MDC Portal - Getting Started site to register and schedule your exam.
The cost of proctoring through ProctorU depends on the time the faulty allows for the test. In general, many proctored assessments in the Virtual College are scheduled for 2 hours and the cost of ProctorU would be in the range of $25. Students receive notification of actual costs before confirming their testing appointment with ProctorU.
Please note: If you schedule your test with ProctorU for the last day of your open exam window, the latest you can schedule it to begin is at 9:30 PM EST.
