We’re available to proctor exams from online courses. For more info give us a call at 317 745 2604, email us, or ask at the Adult Services desk.

Library staff is available to proctor exams, provided that enough advance notice is given, and that the exam will begin and end during the library’s regular hours of operation. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the means of effective communication between the proctor and the instructor, and the library cannot be held responsible for technological incompatibilities and errors.
Beginning April 1st, 2016, there is a $25 fee per exam, and if the proctor is required to take the completed exam to the post office or any other courier service, there will be a $10 handling fee in addition to the actual cost of postage. All fees, including any outstanding fines or fees the student may owe the library, must be paid before the exam is scheduled. (Danville Public Library does not accept credit or debit cards.) The library reserves the right to refuse proctoring services to any person for any reason at any given time.
