The College of Southern Maryland Testing Centers (La Plata, Prince Frederick, and Leonardtown) offer proctoring services for examinees from other institutions by appointment.  You should contact your home institution for procedures you may need to follow to set up test proctoring services at CSM. A valid, non-expired photo ID is required to sit for any examination.  

Effective January 1, 2017 all campuses of the College of Southern Maryland are designated as smoke-free. Smoke, tobacco, and vape products are prohibited from all college locations and property.  The Breathe Clean at CSM initiative applies to anyone who enters CSM properties and events - whether outside, in a building, or in a vehicle.
