Distance Proctoring:

Classroom Exams: CWI students can take their tests with an approved proctor at non-CWI locations via Distance Proctoring. Students and their chosen proctoring location need to fill out the Distance Proctoring Request Form and submit it to the CWI Testing & Assessment Center for each test they wish to complete at the approved location. Following testing, the proctor must then return the Proctor Verification Form to the CWI Testing & Assessment Center.

Placement Exams: To take your Placement Exams via another institution (outside of CWI), please download, complete, and submit the Distance Placement Test Request Form. Please allow up to 48 business hours for processing once we receive your request.
