Proctor Services at Georgia State University
The Counseling and Testing Center offers individual proctoring services for those engaged in distance learning, or for other assessments and certifications on an appointment basis, with appointments typically scheduled to begin either at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. Office hours for proctoring services are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. At this time, proctor services are not offered in the evening or on weekends. The Testing office staff proctor both paper based and computer based exams. The proctor fee for exams from U.S. institutions or organizations is $20 per hour, or portion thereof; payment is accepted in the form of money order only, payable at the end of the testing session. The proctor fee for exams from non-U.S. institutions or organizations is $25 per hour or portion thereof.

Prior to designating the Counseling and Testing Center location or having test materials sent to this office, students should confirm an appointment with the proctor. Proctor arrangements may be made as far in advance as the desired dates for testing are known. Payment for invigilation fees for non-U.S. institutions or organizations is accepted in the form of check, money order or bank transfer only.

Counseling and Testing Center is located at 75 Piedmont Ave, N.E., Suite 200A, Atlanta, GA 30303, on the southeast corner of the intersection of Piedmont Ave, N.E. and John Wesley Dobbs Ave., N.E. Upon arrival, candidates should inform staff at the Counseling and Testing Center reception desk that they are taking a proctored exam, so that the staff may provide appropriate directions to the Testing office.

Please contact the Testing Center to arrange appointment dates and times.

Georgia State University online students are not proctored through the Counseling and Testing Center; instead they schedule exams and are proctored through the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning’s proctored lab for online exams
