Testing Center

ARC Testing Center

The Bryan College ARC Testing Center is dedicated to serving students, faculty, and the community by providing a space and resources for the proctoring of various exams, located in Mercer 212E. Students and faculty can benefit from the in-house Proctoring Service free of charge, while various outside tests (such as CLEP) can be taken for a minimal fee.

Proctoring Tests — Proctoring is by appointment only, and all Testing appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours ahead of time. The proctor will need to receive all testing materials and proctoring forms by the close of the business day prior to the scheduled test. Appointments may be made by emailing kswafford1857@bryan.edu OR by going to the ARC Test Site and creating an appointment in the Testing Center’s schedule.

Monday – Thursday:  8:45 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. Friday: 8:45 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Saturday: CLOSED Sunday: CLOSED


CLEP is a 90-minute computer-based exam. On test day, a total of two hours will be required for the exam administration and registration process. A $30 non-refundable administration fee, payable online, or by check or cash (to Bryan), is required on the day that you take your CLEP exam.

TEST DATES: CLEP exams will be administered by appointment only and are administered in the Proctoring Office.


  1. Create your account with CLEP using the following link: Account Signup.
  2. Once you have created your account and paid the fee, please email proctoring@bryan.edu to schedule your test. You must have a voucher number from CLEP in order to schedule your test.

    • $30 non-refundable administration fee, payable online, or by check or cash (to Bryan)

Policies and Guidelines

  • Students are expected to take responsibility for the scheduling of their own exams.
  • Bryan College Student ID must be provided to sign into the testing area.  For non-students a valid driver’s license will suffice.  Other cases will be left up to the discretion of the proctor.
  • Proctoring is by appointment only and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours prior to testing time.
  • If a student arrives more than 15 min. late to a scheduled appointment time, they will not be permitted to test upon arrival.  They should email the proctor in advance to make alternate arrangements.  This does not, however, ensure that you will be able to take your test that day.
  • If a student arrives more than 30 min. late to a scheduled appointment time and has not contacted the proctor within these 30 min., this will constitute a missed appointment.
  • If a student needs to change their scheduled testing time, they must do so at least 24 hours prior to scheduled test, otherwise it will be considered a missed appointment.
  • After three missed appointments, the student will no longer be permitted to use the testing center for the remainder of the semester.
  • All personal items, i.e., notebooks, backpacks, cell phones, smart watches, hats, scarves, hoodies, listening devices, copying devices, food, drinks, children, visitors, notes (unless otherwise specified by the instructor) are prohibited in the testing room.
  • If you leave the testing center, you will not be allowed to return and continue working on your test.
