Test Proctoring

Test proctoring is available for students needing to take an exam outside of the scheduled class time which has been approved by the instructor.

  • Student will provide photo ID to proctor.
  • Library staff requires written test guidelines for each test (which materials can and cannot be used, time limit for testing, procedures for dispersing and turning in tests).
  • Library staff requires students leave all electronic devices not approved during test-taking be left at the front desk.  Other than approved materials, the test-taking surface should be clear.
  • Tests should be scheduled as far in advance as possible to ensure space and a quiet atmosphere for the test-taker.


Academic support is provided for all students free of charge through the library located in Thatcher Hall. Individualized or small group tutoring sessions can be arranged for students requesting this service. Tutoring can be provided via a DCB instructor and is also given through our student tutors. We offer tutoring in all subjects both online and on campus. You can request a tutor on DCB’s website as well as contacting Melissa Brudwick, Student Success Specialist. Students are welcome to drop into the library and request a tutor. Tutors will be notified, and they will reach out to you via email or text. A class to improve study skills is offered for college credit.
