Test Proctoring

To have your exam proctored, first make arrangements with your home institution, then make an appointment at the NHCC Testing Center. We are able to proctor paper and web-based exams for colleges that are located in the United States.

Guidelines for Test Proctoring

  • Cost is $35 per exam for non-Minnesota State institutions. There is no charge for proctoring tests from other Minnesota State system institutions.
  • Appointments are required and should be scheduled at least three days in advance of the requested exam. Allow extra time for checking in and out, paying any fees, and completing paperwork required by your school.
  • Originating institutions must provide all exam materials.
  • The student or institution must prepay for return services and provide all necessary supplies.

Instructor Testing

The Testing Center provides NHCC students a place to make up missed exams. Arrangements must be made with your instructor.

Guidelines for NHCC Instructor Testing

  • Provide instructor name and class information.
  • No appointment is necessary. Testing is done on a drop in basis during testing hours. Allow enough time to finish your test before the Testing Center closes.
  • If you are registered with access services and need test accommodations, call 763-424-0928 to schedule an appointment to coordinate services.
  • Your instructor will indicate an exam due date. Exams cannot be provided beyond this date.
  • Once you start an exam you must finish it. You cannot start an exam and come back later to complete it.

Testing Policies

  • A Photo ID is required to take any exam.
  • Electronic devices including cell phones, personal laptops, PDAs and tablets are not allowed during testing.
  • Cheating is prohibited. If cheating occurs, the student will need to stop testing and immediately leave the testing room. A student code of conduct will be filed - Code of Student Conduct for Student Behavior and Academic Honesty.

Accuplacer - Remote Location Request

The Accuplacer test may be administered to students who live outside of the area by an approved proctor.

  • The student must locate a proctor from a college or military base. Fees are the responsibility of the student. The proctor must fill out the Remote Accuplacer Test Request form.
  • The day of your appointment bring a photo ID and your NHCC ID number to the testing location.
  • You will receive test results immediately following the test session. If you have questions concerning the test results, please call the NHCC Testing Center.
