Other Testing Options

About Exams

With the exception of ASE and Pearson VUE testing, all testing options listed below include a proctoring fee. The Academic Testing Center charges a standard proctoring fee of $30 to administer a test for any academic institution outside of Hagerstown Community College. However, if a student knows in advance that he/she will require proctoring services from the Academic Testing Center for more than two tests during a semester, he/she has the option to pay a flat semester fee of $75, rather than $30 per test. Students must make testing center staff aware that they intend to take more than two tests during the semester in order to take advantage of the flat $75 fee. The payment options to register online are Visa and MasterCard. All testing fees are non-refundable; make sure that you want to continue with this registration.
