Proctoring Services for Non-Pitt Exams

Testing Center Front Desk

The University of Pittsburgh Testing Center offers proctoring services to non-Pitt students or candidates who must take monitored exams for other universities, learning centers, or various certification purposes. These exams can be either computer or paper-based exams. Any person using this proctoring service must submit a Proctor Request Form, and the UPTC requires all forms to be submitted 48-hours before all requested testing appointments. There is a Testing Center Fee of $25 for exams taken for another university or academic institution, or $50 for certification/professional exams as well as exams for overseas institutions. All fees must be paid upon arrival, and in cash or check form only. The Testing Center fee will be waived for anyone who provides a Military ID.

For more information about our proctoring services, please send an email to tests@pitt.edu and we can assist you.

What are the rules and regulations of the UPTC?
  • Please bring a student ID or some type of photo identification to validate your identity upon arrival.
  • Please be aware that camera surveillance is in operation inside the Testing Center.
  • The following items are prohibited in the Testing Center: alcohol, controlled substances, firearms, knives/sharp objects.
  • Unless previously approved, restroom breaks are not permitted.
  • Once a testing session has started, students are NOT permitted to leave the Testing Center. If a student has to exit the Testing Center for any reason (including emergencies), the testing session is immediately over and the instructor will be notified. Completion of the test is at the instructor’s discretion.
  • Proctors are not permitted to answer questions about tests.
  • Interaction with other testers can result in dismissal.
  • All personal belongings must be stored in a locker while testing. Cell phones, electronic devices, backpacks, bags etc. are not permitted in the Testing Center. The lone exception is if exam materials are pre-approved for use during testing (such as notes, textbooks, calculators, etc.). Instructors must inform testing administration of what materials are permitted in advance of your arrival. We cannot allow a student to use exam materials without written consent from the instructor.
  • Faculty will be immediately informed of a suspected academic integrity violation.
Is there a fee for non-University of Pittsburgh students?

Yes. Non-University of Pittsburgh students taking exams for an academic institution are charged a $25 fee per exam. International and non-Academic testers (i.e. professional certification) are charged a $50 fee. The fee is payable on sign-in. Cash or checks are accepted. For your convenience, there is an ATM located on the ground floor of the Cathedral of Learning near the UPTC.

What are the evacuation procedures?

In the event of an evacuation of the UPTC:

  • Testers taking a paper/pencil exam should flip the exam upside down.
  • All other computer-based exams should be suspended immediately.
  • Leave all materials at the testing station. Testers will not be allowed to access the lockers.
  • Exit the Testing Center calmly and meet at the William Pitt Union front steps, directly across the street.
  • Once we’re re-admitted to the building, you will be able to resume the test.
  • Instructors whose students were impacted will be notified.
  • Occasionally, time constraints will prevent students from completing the exam once the emergency situation is resolved. In that case, UPTC administrators will work with the instructors to determine what course of action to take to allow the students to complete their tests.
