DVC understands that every student's situation is unique. If for any reason you are
unable to complete an assessment on the DVC campus, you can take it through a different
campus's proctoring service (meaning, a location other than DVC with someone to supervise
your assessment). This is available to any student located in the United States or
US military base. Please note, you must include your DVC student ID number on all documents.
Email the Assessment Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a copy of the "Student
Instructions" and "Remote Proctoring Request Form."
This form will need to be filled out by the proctor at the location where you will
take the assessment.
Once this form has been completed and submitted to the Assessment Center, it will
take up to 72 business hours to process.
Once your proctor and location have been approved, you may take the assessment at
your chosen location.
When will my results be ready?
Placements are usually posted within 72 business hours of completing your assessment.
Where can I find my results?
Please allow 72 hours if you took the assessment remotely.
Please note: Assessment Center staff cannot give results over the phone, mail, fax, or email.

offers proctoring services and whose proctoring policies and rules are the same as

services, what their policies are, how to schedule, and how much it costs. Any and
all proctoring fees are the responsibility of the student.

proctor (supervisor) of the assessment. The date of the assessment must be included
on the form. Any form submitted to our office with missing or incorrect information
will not be approved.
Assessments must be taken at a college in the United States and at least 100 miles
away from DVC's Pleasant Hill campus.
