S.L.A.C. Make-Up Exam Proctoring Policy

Test proctoring service is suspended until further notice while we are working remotely.  

 

The Student Learning Assistance Center is here to assist the students of San Antonio College in proctoring make-up exams. The proctoring services of the S.L.A.C. are intended for make-up exams only.

The S.L.A.C. will not proctor regular lecture and online course exams for the entire class. We will proctor make-up exams for select students (5 or less) at the approval of the instructor. 

The normal proctoring hours for the S.L.A.C. are between the following hours:

During Fall and Spring semesters:

Monday - Thursday: 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm 
Friday: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm
Saturday: 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

During the Summer Session:

Monday - Thursday: 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm 
Friday: Closed
Saturday: Closed

Please Note:

  • Students must complete their exam by the end time. For example: If a student arrives at 6:41pm on a Tuesday evening (when we stop proctoring at 7:30pm) to take an exam, then they will have less than an hour to complete their test since all tests will be collected at 7:30pm whether the student is finished or not.
  • These hours are subject to change due to other scheduled events/classes so please call us at (210) 486-0165 to confirm the current testing hours.
  • No test proctoring will be done outside of the set hours.

There will be no exam proctoring during Maymester or in between semesters.
