Reference Desk Staff at the Upper Moreland Library will proctor examinations and tests for distance learners if the demands of the student and the institution fall within the criteria listed below and the procedures outlined are followed.
There is a fee of $15.00 (effective September 15, 2013) to proctor an examination for a student engaged in distance learning. If postage is not included on envelopes provided by the college or university to return completed examinations, a postage fee will also be charged. The fee is due the day of the exam and may be paid by check (payable to Upper Moreland Library) or cash.
- Tests are scheduled by a Reference Librarian. Visit the reference desk in person or call 215-659-0741 to schedule a test date.
- The examination must be taken during scheduled Library hours.
- The student is responsible for calling the Library to verify that the exam has arrived prior to the exam date. The Library will not alert the student. Please call the reference desk (215-659-0741) to confirm.
- All mailing charges, photocopying, or other costs associated with the exam are the responsibility of the student.
- Library staff will not take the completed exam to the post office, UPS, or FedEx mail drop. We will include the completed exam with our regularly scheduled outgoing mail. The student or institution must provide a self-addressed, postage paid envelope in which to mail the exam.
- At the request of the institution, the Library will retain a copy of the exam for up to eight weeks. After that time, the copy will be destroyed.
There is no charge for these services other than those specified above.
