National College Testing Association standards and guidelines

Exam Proctoring: Non-Rio Salado Students

We proctor exams for distance learning students attending other colleges and universities as well as business and community related exams. We are an active member of the National College Testing Association.

General Information

  • Although all testing is done on a walk-in basis, it is your responsibility to verify we have received your test materials at least 24 hours prior to your test date.
  • We proctor both paper and pencil exams and computerized tests.  We accept exams via mail, email, or fax.
  • Please ensure your school sends your exam materials at least 48 hours prior to the date of testing to allow for processing.  Exams that are received the day of the student’s required date of testing may not be processed on time, which could cause delays and possibly prevent the student from testing.

Hours and Locations

  • Proctoring is available at all Rio Salado Testing Centers, continently located through Maricopa County. Please make sure your school has the correct information to send your exams to your desired location.
  • No appointment is needed; all testing is on a walk in basis. You must arrive with ample time to complete your test; we close promptly at our listed closing times. Hours of operation vary by site.
  • Rio Salado College does not offer proctoring services on Saturday.
  • For information on testing locations, closures and holiday hours, please visit the testing locations and hours page.
