Where would you like to take your exam?

If you want to test in London, you must call (606) 878-4743 or (606) 878-4728 or email to make an appointment.

If you want to test in Somerset, you do not need a specific appointment; you can come in anytime during the hours we are open for testing. Testing will begin any time after 8:30 a.m. EST. Monday- Friday. Students will need to know how much time they are allotted for the exam and complete and submit the exam before 4:00 p.m. EST. Proctored Exams are administered on a first come first serve basis.

Please note that when the College is closed the Assessment Center is also closed.

You will need to know how much time you are allotted for the exam and come early enough to complete and submit the exam at least 30 minutes before we close at 4:30 p.m. EST.

Some instructors require that you report to them a specific time/day. Go ahead and decide what day/time is convenient for you during our testing hours/day and inform your instructor. We do not make specific appointments due to students often needing to reschedule.

A photo ID is required for testing and you must know your instructor’s name. Children are not permitted in the testing center.

You will need to inform your Instructor/College that you want to take the exam at Somerset Community College. Your instructor will need to post the Proctor information on the Point, a secure proctor site for KCTCS.

For non-KCTCS courses, we have a Proctored Exam fee of $25 and it must be paid in full on the first day of testing.
