Exams for External Clients

St. Lawrence College Test Centre offers proctoring services to students writing examinations for external colleges, universities, or government agencies. It is important for students to note that their registered institution will have a proctor request procedure in place. This will require the student to ensure that St. Lawrence College is a recognized test centre and is approved for their testing needs.

Important notes:

  • It is the student’s responsibility to meet the needs of the proctor information that is required from their registered institution.
  • Most request forms will require a proctor signature.
    Non-SLC students will need to arrange any accommodations through their home institution.

To fill in the required proctor information, please email your desired campus in order to complete your request:

Students who are writing for an external institution are subject to the following proctoring fee: a $75 flat fee per exam.

Depending on the college or university supplying the exam, students may be responsible for covering the cost of the proctor. Please check in with your registered college or university in order to determine who is responsible for the payment.

It is recommended that students also inquire about the possibility of a postage fee. If their registered college or university does not provide pre-paid return postage, students may be subject to a $12 courier fee ($50 for international courier) at the completion of their exam.

Students who are looking to write an examination for the Apprenticeship and Trade Exemption Office may register for their examination through SLC's School of Skilled Trades and Tourism by emailing apprenticeship@sl.on.ca.
