A correspondence exam is an exam that a person takes at UWL's Testing Center though they are registered for the course through another institution. 

  • We administer and proctor correspondence exams for various colleges and universities and then exams are mailed back to the originating institution following the exam. 
  • If the sponsoring school does not provide postage paid return envelopes, the student is responsible for covering the cost of returning test materials to their school.
  • Many schools now require a member of the National College Testing Association's Consortium of College Test Centers (NCTA CCTC) to proctor their exams. We are an NCTA CCTC member. For more information: NCTA CCTC
  • Any test not taken within the time period determined by the credit granting institution is returned as requested by that institution.
  • Test appointments are scheduled online in minimum 2 hour time blocks at various times throughout the day, Monday through Friday.
  • Each 2 hour block is $33.50.

To schedule a correspondence/proctored exam:

  • Register online at and pay the proctor fee.
  • Once you have a confirmed registration, notify your school that we will be proctoring your exam and an exam needs to be sent to our testing center. If your school requires a proctor consent form, contact our testing coordinator at or call 608.785.8074.  
  • One week prior to your exam date, call our testing coordinator at 608-785-8074 to confirm your exam has arrived. We do not notify you when tests arrive.  You are responsible for confirming your test has arrived at our Testing Center.
