If your organization has a partnering agreement with Thomas Edison State College, specific testing arrangements may exist. In those cases, please refer to your organization’s web link or office. Unless there is an agreement in place, we do not send exams to your employer.
You can take exams for Thomas Edison State College GS, OL or e-Pack® courses at any accredited college or university or at any public library that offers the service. We recommend you find a location close to your home or work so you have easy access on the day of the test. This is especially important if you are enrolled in more than one course per semester or if you are taking more than one exam.
Contact a local college or university and find a full-time member of the testing office or a full-time professor or professional staff member. Adjunct and part-time professors do not qualify. Contact your local public library to find a full-time librarian. Please note that librarians at elementary and high schools do not qualify.
We do not send exams to employers, corporate training offices, supervisors, members of the clergy, family members or friends.
Thomas Edison State College reserves the right to require modification of your proposed proctoring arrangements.
Students taking Guided Study, Online or e-Pack® courses should submit their Proctor Request Form to the Office of Test Administration (OTA) by the end of the first week of the semester. Pen/paper examinations will be mailed to your approved proctor two weeks before the official test week. Call your proctor the week before the official test week to confirm delivery of the test and to confirm the specific test date. The link for online exams will be activated during the official test week.
Please consult the Course Essentials section of your course space to verify the format and number of exams required for each course in which you are enrolled. All assignments and all examinations must be completed by the last day of the semester.
e-Pack® students should mail or fax the Proctor Request Form to the Office of Test Administration by the end of the first week of the semester. The final exam will be mailed to your confirmed test site two weeks before the official final test week. It must be completed by the last day of the semester.
Students can schedule exams from their home computer through our web-based test scheduling service, Test Scheduler. You may schedule examinations for the courses in which you are registered and view a list of all your scheduled test dates and times. Students must also complete a Proctor Request Form, which must be submitted the first week of the semester. Students who have provided the Office of the Registrar with their email address will receive an email confirming their test dates. Students who do not have access to the web can call the Office of Test Administration at (609) 984-1181 ext. 2265 to schedule an examination. As always, space is filled on a first-come, first-served basis so schedule examinations early in the semester. All students coming to the testing facility in Trenton must continue to submit the proctor request form during the first week of the semester.
