Proctoring Services

The CSUN Testing Center offers proctoring services to anyone who needs to take tests on the CSUN campus for another school or agency. Students participating in distance-learning programs or correspondence-degree programs and professionals who need to be tested to receive certification in their field may possibly arrange proctoring at our facility.

Types of Test Administration and Hours

Pencil and paper testing

The Testing Center must receive pencil and paper-based exams from the originating college, university or agency before you schedule a proctored test. The exam must be sent to the following address.

California State University, Northridge

Testing Center

18111 Nordhoff St.
Northridge, CA 91330-8240

Attn: Charity Chia

Once you have requested the exam to be sent, allow three to five business days before scheduling an exam appointment. Arrange for the home campus or agency to include a prepaid self-addressed return envelope. Otherwise, the student is responsible for any related postage fees.

Web-based testing

Email correspondence from another college, university, or agency detailing the Web-based exam instructions need to be sent to testing.center@csun.edu.  Please copy Charity Chia at cchia@csun.edu to ensure receipt of exam materials.

Test administration hours

Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Please call for an appointment.  Testing appointments are based on testing room availability.  Appointments can be made after testing materials have been received by the Testing Center, with few exceptions.  There are NO walk-in/same day appointments.  Appointments should be arranged "at least" 5-7 days prior to the exam's posted deadline.  The Testing Center will hold exams received for a maximum of four weeks unless specified in exam information.  Individuals that have not scheduled or canceled an exam, or failed to appear for an appointment, their exams will be returned to the originating institution and/or destroyed.

Proper identification and test fees will be required on the day of your test.
