Correspondence for Distance Learning Students


Proctoring services are not available for UCF classroom exams (including make-up exams). Please speak with your instructor/professor about the options available to you.

The University Testing Center (UTC) administers Correspondence exams for Distance Learning students. Currently, proctoring services are available for paper-and-pencil and on-line test formats. Correspondence exams are available by appointment only, and you must allow at least 2 weeks to complete the registration process and schedule an appointment. Correspondence exams are typically administered Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM and Friday from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM. Exams must be scheduled to allow full time to be given prior to the close of business on that day. Example: If your exam time limit is 3 hours, then you would need to schedule an appointment no later than 3 hours before the close of business.
