How do I know if I can take my exam with the ASC?

You may take your exam with the ASC if you’re a Bryan student, you have your instructor’s approval, and you fit into one of the categories below: 

  • You fall under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and need to take exams separately from the rest of your class
  • You need to make up or retake an exam
  • You are enrolled in a Bryan College online course
 

If I fall under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), do I have to take exams with the ASC?

Whether or not you take exams with the ASC is up to you and your instructor.  Be sure to discuss your exams with your instructor before you make an exam appointment with the ASC.
 

Do I have to make an appointment to take my exam with the ASC?

Yes.  To make sure we’ll have your exam and a proctor ready for you, please make an appointment as early as possible. Generally, appointments should be made at least TWO DAYS in advance.
 

How do I make an appointment to take my exam?

Fill out the student portion of the Student Form (print one off from the ASC homepage link in the right-hand column, or come to Mr. Youngs' office to pick up a hard-copy) and bring the completed form back to Mr. Youngs' office to schedule your appointment.*

If Mr. Youngs is not in, please leave your completed and signed form in the designated slot on his office door and email proctoring@bryan.edu with your preferred exam date and time within the given proctoring hours for that semester. 
 

You are responsible for scheduling an exam appointment within the time specified by your instructor. Please make your appointment as early as possible.
 

Where exactly will I take my exam in the ASC?

Starting in Fall 2013, students will be taking their exams in Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) or in another designated space inside the Anderson Annex. There will not be any proctoring appointments administered in the ASC space on a regular basis. 
 

Who will proctor my exam?

The ASC Proctoring Coordinator or the ASC Director will proctor your exam.
 

Why do I have to get my instructor’s signature?

We need to make sure there is clear communication between you, your instructor, and the ASC.  Your instructor’s signature tells us that the two of you have discussed where you will take your exam and that you have his or her approval to take it with the ASC.
 

Can my instructor bring the Student Form to the ASC for me?

No.  To avoid miscommunication, please bring the form to Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) and make an appointment to take the exam yourself.
 

What if no one is in the Proctoring Coordinator's office when I come to make my appointment?

Leave your completed and signed Student Form in the designated slot at Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) and email proctoring@bryan.edu with your preferred exam date and time within our proctoring hours. 
 

Can I cancel my appointment after I’ve made it?

Yes.  If you need to cancel your appointment, please email proctoring@bryan.edu or come by Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) as soon as possible.
 

What happens if I miss my exam appointment?

We will inform your instructor that you missed your appointment and ask for further instructions.  Your instructor or the Proctoring Coordinator will let you know whether to reschedule your appointment.
 

Does it cost any money to take my exam in the ASC?

No.  Our proctoring service is available without cost to any Bryan student who needs to use it.

 

Instructors

How do I know if my student can take an exam with the ASC?

If your student needs special accommodations for exams, needs to retake or make up an exam, or is enrolled in a Bryan College online course, he or she can use the ASC Exam Proctoring Service.
 

Whom should I contact with questions about the Exam Proctoring Service?

You may contact the ASC staff by email at proctoring@bryan.edu. You may also come by Sam Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) to discuss proctoring.
 

If my student falls under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), does he or she have to take his or her exam with the ASC?

No.  You can make other arrangements with your student if you prefer.
 

Whom should I contact with questions about ADA accommodations?

Contact Bethany Smith at bethany.smith@bryan.edu; you can coordinate through email, or work out a time to meet at her office in the Academic Support Center.
 

I want one of my students to take an exam with the ASC.  What should I do?

Ask your student to go to Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor) to fill out a Student Form. Once the student turns this in to Sam Youngs, we will email you asking you to fill-out an Instructor Form and deliver it, with the relevant exam, to the ASC. You may mail your exam and form to box 7818, email them to proctoring@bryan.edu, or drop them off at Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor).  
 

Can I make an exam appointment for my student?

No.  To avoid miscommunication, we need to talk directly with your student about his or her schedule. If you want to know if your student has made an appointment or when the appointment is, please email proctoring@bryan.edu and we will let you know.
 

How should I deliver my exam to the ASC?

Please fill out an Instructor Form and include it with your exam.  You can mail your exam and form to box 7818, email them to proctoring@bryan.edu, or drop them off at Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor). 


What should I do if I need to drop off an exam and no one is at the desk?

Should Mr. Youngs' be unavailable when you come to drop off an exam, please mail the exam and Instructor Form to box 7818 or email to proctoring@bryan.edu. Please do not leave it in a folder on the desk or otherwise; mailing the exam is a secure method of making sure we receive the exam.
 

When should I deliver my exam to the Proctoring Coordinator?

Please deliver your exam to Samuel Youngs (Proctoring Coordinator) in time for the student to take the exam (generally, at least one day before the student has scheduled their proctoring appointment).
 

How do I include instructions with my exam?

Fill out an Instructor Form and deliver it to us with your exam.
 

How do I retrieve the exam once my student has completed it?

We can mail it to you or you may pick it up at Mr. Youngs' office (Anderson Annex, top floor).  Please indicate which option you prefer on the Instructor Form.
