Correspondence Testing

The College of Southern Maryland provides test proctoring for students who are enrolled in other institutions and need someone to proctor their test(s) or provide placement testing locally. 

Correspondence Testing

Students are responsible to make their course instructor aware of a need to test somewhere other than where the course is being given.  Contact the testing center at your college or university.  They must work with the CSM Testing Center where you wish to complete your exam in order to arrange for exam materials and proctoring instructions to be sent.  Instructions for on-line exams may be sent by directly by email to CSM's Testing Centers.  Exams to be given in paper and pencil format must be sent by mail.  Please allow adequate time for delivery of exam materials prior to your desired test date. For more information on scheduling an appointment, please call the Testing Center at the campus you wish to test.

    CSM charges a $25 fee to proctor correspondence exams. This fee is non-refundable and can be paid at the Bursar's Office Monday through Friday prior to taking the exam.  It may be paid with cash, credit card, check or money order (made payable to CSM or the College of Southern Maryland). To download a copy of the Test Proctor Fee form click here.  For your convenience or if you will be testing on a Saturday when the Bursar's Office is closed, you may also pay on-line in advance by clicking here for the Test Fee Payment Authorization Form.

    Bring the receipt confirming payment of your test proctor fee on the day of your exam along with a photo i.d.  Always confirm exam materials have been received prior to your test date.

     

    Remote College Placement Testing 

    The College of Southern Maryland is able to remotely administer your college's COMPASS or ACCUPLACER placement.  Remote placement testing means you will be taking your college's placement test.  The placement test results will be based on your college's cut scores and you should receive placement messages regarding courses at your institution if provided with a copy of a score report.  Your institution will have access to test results through the COMPASS or ACCUPLACER database almost immediately. Contact the testing center at your college or university in order to register for a remote COMPASS or ACCUPLACER exam at one of CSM's Testing Centers.  You will receive a confirmation email with either a Registration number (COMPASS) or Voucher number (ACCUPLACER).  Be prepared to provide that number when you contact the Testing Center to schedule your test appointment.

    If your college or university does not use COMPASS or ACCUPLACER for their placement tests, please follow the guidelines provided above for Correspondence testing.

    CSM charges a $25 fee to proctor remote placement exams. This fee is non-refundable and can be paid at the Bursar's Office Monday through Friday prior to taking the exam.  It may be paid with cash, credit card, check or money order (made payable to CSM or the College of Southern Maryland).
