Tests Offered

A proctored test is one that is taken under supervision. Some NCMC instructors require exams to be proctored. Check your online course syllabus to see if your class requires proctored exams.

Students who miss a test may be required to take a proctored make-up test at a later date.

There is no charge for students taking a proctored test for an NCMC class.  There is also no charge for students attending another Missouri community college for proctored tests.

Testing locations

Proctored testing is currently available at two locations, Main Campus – Trenton and North Belt Center.  Select the best location that fits your schedule.
