Proctored Tests

The WATC testing center proctors tests for current students who are required to take exams for their courses in a proctored setting. This includes make-up exams, online finals and other assessments. There is no charge for the proctoring services for these exams. Arrangements should be made through WATC course faculty. A valid Photo ID is required for each student taking a proctored assessment.
