Failure to submit a SEA form on time will jeopardize the student’s ability to take an exam.

Exam Information

 

Please read this page thoroughly for various examination options and instructions.

No matter which option you choose, all students must submit a SEA FORM (Student Examination Agreement) to the MSOL Office. 

Please submit your SEA form to:  and be sure to include your handwritten or digital signature.  An e-mail confirmation is sent when the SEA form is approved.

Failure to submit a SEA form on time will jeopardize the student’s ability to take an exam.  

What is a SEA form?

The SEA form (Student Examination Agreement) is required for all students in the MSOL Program (and for students who are taking courses through UCLA Extension or the Summer Session). 

This form as an agreement between you (the student) and the MSOL Program (and your assigned proctor, if applicable).  It confirms whether the student will be testing on campus or utilizing an off-campus proctor. 

A proctor must have a verified business e-mail address (gmail, yahoo, etc. will not be accepted) reliable access to the internet, the ability to download and print PDF documents, and access to a scanner (to send the completed exams to the MSOL Office).  

Do I need a new SEA form each quarter?

No, you do not need to complete a new SEA form each quarter.

A SEA form is required when: 

  • You are taking your first exam as a new student in the MSOL Program.
  • You need to change your current proctor to a new proctor.  We can store up to two proctors at once; one being your “primary” and the other your “alternate.”  You may alternate between two proctors (or switch back to test on campus) but you must e-mail our office two weeks in advance of an exam 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, 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).  

When is the SEA form due?

If you have determined that a new SEA form is required, please submit your form to: msengrol@seas.ucla.edu at least two weeks in advance of your next exam.

I'm enrolled in two courses. What are my testing options?

Scenario A: You normally take your exams on-campus (Saturdays)

Solution: You must choose one exam to be proctored off campus (the Friday before the official exam date).  We cannot proctor additional exams before or after the designated exam time.  Please complete a SEA form to indicate your testing preferences/locations.  

Scenario B: You normally take your exams via a proctor.

Solution: You can either take both exams on one day, or take one exam on Friday and one exam on Saturday.  

When can I take my exam(s)?

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 before the official exam date). 

Can I take the exam on a different date?

MSOL discourages the practice of requesting alternate test dates.  To be fair and equitable to all students (and to maintain test integrity) we ask that you take your exam on the official exam date or the Friday before (an added accommodation).  

If you find yourself in an extenuating circumstance that would prohibit you from testing on Friday or Saturday, please e-mail your instructor and ask for written approval to test on a specific date (approval is at the sole discretion of the instructor).  If an alternate date is granted, please forward the approval to:  at least two weeks prior to an exam Since the MSOL Office handles the distribution of exams, it is the student’s responsibility to inform the MSOL Office of any changes/special accommodations (please do not assume that your instructor has provided us with notification).  

I don't live near UCLA. Where can I take my exam(s)?

The websites below may assist you in finding a certified testing center but is not intended as a comprehensive list.  Testing centers can also be found via a web search + your zip code.  If you need suggestions, please send us an e-mail and we would be happy to assist you.  Please scroll down to option 2 for more information on proctor eligibility.

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 also 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 an examination 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)

PLEASE NOTE: You may be asked to submit a copy of your proctor’s business card or provide a web link that can establish their eligibility as a proctor (i.e. an online college/university staff directory). 

TIPS:

  • Confirm the proctor’s availability at least 1-2 weeks in advance (there have been instances where the proctor is out of the office or no longer employed with the company).
  • If utilizing a testing center, ask if a general business e-mail address can be used versus the individual proctor’s e-mail address.

RELEASE OF EXAMS

Detailed instructions (varies by each instructor) will be provided to proctors in advance of 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.  Students must complete the exam no later than the official exam date.  Proctors are responsible for returning all exam materials immediately following the completion of the exam.  If students or proctors do not follow the exam procedures, the exam may be forfeited.
