Academic Proctoring and Placement Center

The Academic Proctoring and Placement Center is designed to be used by students who miss an exam due to unforeseen circumstances like an illness, family emergency, or school event.

Note: Faculty and students on the San Ramon campus, please visit SRC Academic Proctoring for information about how to submit tests and schedule appointments. Students with accommodations for a disability should contact Disability Support Services for instructions on how to set up your exam.
