Additional Information

  • WCPL staff will not sign any statement required by the testing institution that is inconsistent with our procedures or how the test is administered.
  • If we are unable to proctor your exam for this reason, we will notify you and your school ahead of time and provide a list of other proctoring services in the area.
  • We reserve the right to refuse to proctor an exam. If proctoring services are terminated, the institution will notify the student.
  • We cannot be held responsible for technical difficulties arising from the testing institution or library technology.
  • We are not responsible for exams that are lost by a postal system or electronically.
  • If the library needs to close due to a weather event, library staff will make every effort to contact the student. However, please check the library website or call your proctoring library for more information.
