    Students who live over 50 miles from the Glen Ellyn campus and are enrolled in an online course requiring on-site testing can arrange to have their tests administered in an approved testing facility. Complete the required Academic Testing Proctor Request Form for approval prior to scheduling your exam appointment. The Academic Testing Proctor Request Form must be completed no later than two weeks prior to the first exam date and preferably before the start of classes. If a Proctor Request Form is submitted less than two weeks before the first exam date, the College of DuPage Academic Testing Center cannot guarantee the proctor will receive the exam in advance of the testing deadline.
