Welcome to the ASC Proctoring Center

The ASC Proctoring Center provides Alternative Testing in a distraction-reduced environment for students with accommodations to take exams and quizzes.

The ASC Proctoring Centers hours of operation are Monday-Thursday 8:00AM - 5:00PM & Friday 8:00AM - 3:00PM

The Proctoring Center can work with you and your instructor to schedule Alternative Testing during operating hours on the Aptos and Watsonville Center Campuses. You should make your request using the MyASC for Students portal. If proctoring is needed for Alternative Testing in the evening, it can be made by appointment only. You can also arrange scheduling with your instructor. If you have any questions, please contact the proctor at 831-479-6369 or email testforproctor@cabrillo.edu.

Proctoring Center Guidelines for Alternative Testing:

  • Students need to reserve a seat in the proctoring center at least 5 business days (one week) for exams and 10 business days (two weeks) for final exams.

  • Schedule your quiz/exam for the same day and time as your class.

  • No electronic devices are allowed in the testing area.

  • If a student is late to the exam, that time will be deducted from the total time allotted for the exam.

  • Make-up exams need to be scheduled a minimum of three (3) days in advance AND require the instructor's approval.

  • If due to scheduling conflicts, the student is unable to schedule the exam with the Proctoring Center, it is the student's responsibility to make other arrangements with the instructor.

Scheduling Alternative Testing:

To schedule your in-person exams, go to MyASC for Students. See below for instructions on how to submit your exam requests in MyASC for Students or check out these written instructions with screenshots. You can find additional information on our MyASC Training Portal webpage.

Note: You must first request your accommodations for the current semester before you can schedule Alternative Testing.

We recommend speaking with your instructor about your Alternative Testing request before you submit your exam scheduling request through MyASC. Please contact testforproctor@cabrillo.edu if you have any issues with submitting an exam request. In your Accommodation Notification Letter, your instructor is given a link to complete the Testing Agreement. They can also access the Testing Agreement through their MyASC faculty portal.

Modifying Exams:

If you've scheduled an exam and realize that you have scheduled the wrong date, time, or if your instructor has changed the date/time of the exam, you can reschedule the exam through MyASC for Students. Please note that if the day or time that you are rescheduling for does not match what is approved on the Testing Agreement, we will need confirmation from your instructor about the change before we can approve your request.
