External Institutions

We offer proctoring services for any outside institution that has approved our Test Centre as an eligible testing site. We will follow your guidelines and procedures when supervising tests on behalf of your institution.

We have room for 32 paper-based tests and 14 computer-based tests. The Test Centre is a quiet environment with ample space. We have security cameras to record and monitor test takers. Our invigilators are highly experienced and knowledgeable about proctoring processes. We have software for accommodations such as Read & Write, Kurzweil and Dragon.

We charge an invigilation fee of $75 + HST per candidate. The test-taker is responsible for this cost, unless your institution covers external proctoring fees.

We welcome any affiliation with outside institutions and we are willing to work with you to make sure we meet the requirements and standards necessary to become an official external testing site for your institution.

Please contact us for more information.


External Test-Takers

A proctor is a person who monitors students during a test. Some institutions require that their tests be supervised. If you are a student who is attending another post-secondary institution, or if you are a community member who needs to take a test for work-related purposes, we’re able to provide proctoring services in our secure and well-supervised environment.

Contact Information:

Test Centre
Cambrian College
1400 Barrydowne Road
Sudbury, Ontario
Telephone: 705-566-8101, ext. 7560

Wait for confirmation of your exam date
Once your institution confirms the exam date with us, we will send you an email. Your institution will provide us with your exam and any necessary documents.

5. Pay for your exam

Cost: $75+HST ($84.75)

Once you have received our email to confirm that your institution will be sending us your exam, you must pay our invigilation fee.

To pay, the Enrolment Centre has to create a profile for you so that you can access campus to write the test. Then, you will be given a student number which you will need to pay the invigilation fee using your online banking.

To create a Student ID we need the following information:

  • Full Name
  • Address
  • Phone
  • Email
  • Date of Birth

E-mail all this information to:

Once we create the student profile, you will be assigned a student number (A000000) which you will use to pay the invigilation fee.

Once you have your student number, add “Cambrian College Student Payments” as a payee in your bill payment section of your online banking. Your student number is your account number. Then pay the $75 + HST = $84.75 total. Take a screenshot of your payment confirmation screen, as we will need to see this as your proof of payment upon arrival to the Test Centre.

6. Arrive early for your exam

Arrive for your exam 30 minutes before your scheduled start time. Ensure you have a valid government-issued photo ID (Driver’s Licence, Passport, or Ontario Photo Card) and proof of payment.

7. If you need to cancel or reschedule

If you need to cancel or reschedule, please notify the Test Centre at least 5 days in advance. There are no refunds for no-shows or cancellations received without advanced notice.

Invigilation Rules

When we are proctoring a test for an external institution, we will follow the guidelines given to us by the institution. Some institutions have more strict invigilation rules than others, please inquire with your institution if you are interested in learning more about your institution’s invigilation rules.

It is important that test scores are an accurate reflection of test takers’ abilities, and that all test takers are assessed fairly. Therefore, in compliance with the Cambrian College’s Academic Integrity Policy, the following actions are prohibited:

  • Using aids, electronic and non-electronic, that have not been authorized for use during testing.
  • Copying from any source (i.e. notes, electronic devices, the internet, etc.)
  • Having an unauthorized person help you with your test.
  • Copying and recording, in any way, any test material.
  • Sharing test materials with others.
  • Submitting a work as one’s own if the work has been prepared by someone else.
  • Taking an assessment or an exam on behalf of someone else.

Acts of academic misconduct during testing will be taken very seriously and will be addressed in accordance with the Policy.
