Ask for the director of the office or the person in charge.

Explain to your contact person that you are taking an online course with Mercy College and you are inquiring about the possibility of their office providing a proctor to administer your paper/pencil midterm and/or final exam. (Some colleges refer to this as "courtesy testing.) Please Note: Students must make arrangements to pay the proctor themselves, if necessary.

Should the exam center agree, you should have available possible exam dates, times, and the allowable length of time for your exam (Remember, they are providing you a courtesy, so please have as much information on hand and be flexible as possible.) Try to confirm the date and time of the exam at the time of the agreement.

Students who live outside of a 100-mile radius of a Mercy College campus may request that their exam be sent to a remote proctor.  To request an exam from the Testing Office, students are to first schedule an appointment with a proctor from a college/university testing center, testing center, or library in their area that regularly proctors exams.

Then, students are to fill out the Remote Proctor Application Form below in its entirety and submit it to the Testing Office. All forms must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the first Mid-Term or Final exam date of the semester.

Students must submit one Remote Proctor Application Form to request a Mid-Term exam, and a second Remote Proctor Application Form to request a Final exam.

Students are responsible for the payment of the proctor.

Students who live within a 100-mile radius of a Mercy College campus are required to take exams on campus on the designated exam dates/times. Students who live within a 100-mile radius from a Mercy College campus do not qualify for a remote proctor.

Please note: The Testing Office does not administer English exams.  Please contact the English Department directly regarding English exams. The contact in the English Department is Linda Dubiell,, 914-674-7353.
