Correspondence Exams

Collin College serves as a proctoring site for distance learning students from across the country. We offer a secure testing environment for a variety of exams including paper/pencil and computer-based exams. The Collin College Testing Centers are members of the 'Consortium of College Testing Centers,' and will proctor college credit level exams for US accredited colleges and universities.


Note: Correspondence exams are only administered to persons 17 years of age or older at the Testing Centers.


What is required to register?

  • The student must first contact the Collin College Testing Center Supervisor at the chosen campus and get the proctor information for that campus.
  • The student must then contact their institution and provide them the information on where to send the testing materials. Collin College must have the exam materials before a test date will be scheduled. Please allow 3 to 5 business days before calling to make an appointment to ensure that we have time to process your test materials.
  • We do not accept Walk-Ins.  Please contact the Testing Center of your choice directly to discuss scheduling options.
  • The administrative fee for correspondence testing is $30 per exam, to be paid at the Bursar's office.  The receipt must be brought to the Testing Center on the day of the exam.
