Correspondence Tests, General Information


*All proctored tests take place at the HSS Building, Room 245*


We offer proctoring services for tests 3 hours or less that are from U.S. institutions. This is how it works:

You request the test from your institution be sent to us. Once we have received the exam, you call us to schedule an appointment. Appointments are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis, so we are unable to guarantee that a particular date and/or time will be available. The sooner we receive the test, the sooner you can make your appointment and the more likely we’ll be able to offer you an appointment that works for you.


We charge $25/hour which is payable by check only at the time you take the test. Additionally, if the test needs to be mailed back to the institution and prepaid shipping is not provided, you will be responsible for the shipping fee. You can either bring $5 for standard USPS shipping or a prepaid fed ex envelope.


If your test fails to meet any of these requirements, we will not be able to proctor the test for you. You might try contacting the Daly City Library system at (650) 991-8023, Skyline College at (650) 738-4188 or San Bruno Public Library at (650) 616-7078 as they offer proctoring services, and they have fewer restrictions than us.

Important, please note: ***All proctored tests take place at the HSS Building, Room 245***


To cancel or reschedule your request must be made at least 24-hours in advance of your appointment time. A cancellation, reschedule or “no-show” less than a 24-hour advance notice will prompt the return of your exam to the originating institution and no future appointments will be scheduled.


If you require special testing accommodations or for more information, please phone 415-338-2271 or send an e-mail to testing@sfsu.edu.
