All Remote Testing Fees are waived through Spring 2020.

For MDC students requesting to take a placement test at another institution or via a technology supported online proctoring service.

Miami Dade College (MDC) has a Remote Testing process in place for allowing students to take a placement test on a remote testing basis. The Testing and Assessment Departments use the term "Remote Testing" to describe tests that are authorized by MDC to be administered by a non-MDC proctor at another institution, an approved facility or via an MDC approved online proctoring service. The criteria below explains the MDC remote testing request process and fees.

Remote Placement Testing will be processed for the following reasons:

  • Students who live outside of the South Florida Tri-County area (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties).
  • Students who live within the South Florida Tri-County area who are requesting a technology supported online proctoring service due to a conflict with MDC test center hours of operation, are homebound or prefer social distancing.

The following tests are eligible to be taken through MDC's Remote Testing process:
