Option 2: Off-Campus Examinations (i.e. professional testing center, student’s place of employment)

Students are responsible for finding a qualified proctor to administer each exam.  Any fees incurred are the student’s responsibility.  To protect the integrity of examinations, MSOL reserves the right to reject any proposed proctor or any previously approved proctor.  Special accommodations must be documented with CAE prior to the testing date.

Acceptable proctors include:

  • College or university testing center proctor
  • College or university faculty member
  • Test administrator at a professional testing center
  • Librarian
  • Military: Educational Services Officer or higher ranking officer
  • Corporate Education Coordinator or Human Resources Representative (this option may be available at large companies, typically through a human resources office)

TIPS:

  • Confirm the proctor’s availability in advance (there have been instances where the proctor is no longer employed with the company).
  • If utilizing a testing center, ask if a general e-mail address can be listed versus the individual proctor’s e-mail address.  There have been occasions where the exam is sent to a proctor and they are either out sick or on vacation, causing the exam to be delayed.

OFFICIAL EXAM DATES CAN BE FOUND UNDER THE ACADEMIC CALENDAR.  Students are expected to take their midterm exam on the official exam date OR the Friday of week 5.  The final exam should be taken on the official exam date OR the Friday of week 10.  Permission is not required to test on Friday.  If you need to take an exam on a different date, please e-mail your instructor directly to seek permission (approval is at the sole discretion of the instructor).  If an alternative date is granted, please forward the approval to:  at least two weeks prior to an exam.  It is the student’s responsibility to inform the MSOL Office of any changes/special accommodations.  

RELEASE OF EXAMS: Detailed instructions (will vary by instructor) will be provided to proctors shortly before the exam date.  Provided our office has received the exam from your instructor, exams are released to proctors 1-2 days in advance of the official exam date until midnight PST on the exam day.  Students must complete the exam no later than the official exam date.  Proctors are responsible for returning all exam materials by e-mail immediately following completion of the exam.  If students or proctors do not follow the exam procedures, the exam may be forfeited.

The websites below may assist you in finding a certified testing center, but is not intended as a comprehensive list.  Many of our students have found testing centers via a web search + their zip code.

All students (no matter which option they choose) must submit a SEA FORM to the MSOL Office two weeks prior to an exam if:

  • You are taking your first exam as a new student in the MSOL Program
  • You need to change your current proctor to a different proctor (we can store up to two proctors at once; one being your “primary” and the other your “secondary” proctor.  You can switch back and forth but you must e-mail our office two weeks in advance to let us know).
  • You previously took an MSOL course via UCLA Extension but have now been officially admitted

If the above does not apply to you, then you do not need to submit a new SEA Form.  The last SEA Form you submit will remain as your default option unless you indicate otherwise.  Please submit your SEA Form via email and be sure to include your electronic or scanned signature: An email confirmation is sent when the SEA Form is approved.

The SEA Form confirms that the student’s proctor has a business email address, reliable access to the internet, the ability to download and print PDF documents, and access to a scanner or fax machine (to send the completed exams to the MSOL Office).   Students who fail to submit their SEA Form on time risk forfeiting their ability to take an exam.
