Student Requirements

  • Read the important instructor supplied information located at the end of this document
  • Other special requirements may apply. Consult "Other Information about the Section" for details.
  • Proctored Testing is Required

Proctored Testing is Required

Your instructor requires proctored testing. Proctored testing services are available free of charge on a walk-in basis at the Newtown Campus, the Lower Bucks Campus (Bristol), and the Upper Bucks Campus (Perkasie). The specific days and hours for testing services at the Newtown and branch campuses vary by semester.

Your instructor may offer the option of allowing you to propose an alternative proctor if Bucks County Community College testing facilities are otherwise inaccessible to you. However, all proctored testing must occur within the United States during the assigned testing period. Failure to comply will result in your receiving an F for the course.
