ProctoringAcademic Support Services

College of The Albemarle (COA) Students

Some courses may require proctored exams monitored by impartial individuals (proctors) to help ensure the security and integrity of each exam. If a course requires proctored exams, this information is clearly indicated in the course syllabus at the beginning of the course. You may take proctored exams for no charge at COA – Elizabeth City, COA – Edenton-Chowan or COA – Dare.

If you live outside the COA service area, you may arrange for a qualified proctor to supervise your exam. Please be advised that proctors may charge you a fee for their services, and that a relative, no matter what their position, may not serve as your proctor.

Placement Testing for Non-COA Students

COA is now a “Remote Test Site” for Accuplacer. Please have your College or University Testing Center Department register your placement test(s) through the “Voucher” link in Accuplacer by using the “Generate Remote Test Voucher” link. Accuplacer will then generate a “Remote Voucher Notification” email containing the “Voucher Number” required to launch the requested test(s). This voucher number will also ensure that your college or university will have access to the test(s) scores. Once this email is received you’ll receive a response email regarding the process to follow to schedule a date, time and campus in which the test(s) will be taken.


If you’re not currently enrolled or employed at COA and require the use of our proctoring services, you’ll be asked to pay a non-refundable $25.00 fee through the campus cashier’s office, and provide a valid photo identification at the time of the exam. The COA – Elizabeth City cashier’s window is located in building A. To make a payment at either COA – Edenton-Chowan or COA – Dare, please inquire at the front desk.
