eLearning Course Exams

As a student at GHC, we want you to know that the method of testing in each GHC online course is determined by the instructor of that course section. Therefore, the first week of the course, you should read the course syllabus or policies to learn about the testing method that will be used. If you have questions about how testing will be done in any course, contact your instructor for guidance. The proctored testing service offered by the GHC Testing Services Department is only available to Web Based, eClassroom, and eCore* classes. Hybrid or traditional classes will test during their scheduled class meetings.

Students with Special Needs:

Students receiving accommodations based on the impact of a disability must coordinate proctored exams with the Disability Support staff. Please contact the campus Student Support Services office to make an appointment for a proctored exam with accommodations. DO NOT follow the “Registering for Proctored Testing” directions until you read the eLearning disability support information.

Respondus LockDown Browser

Some instructors prefer that their students take tests using Respondus Lockdown Browser. Check your course syllabus, or with your instructor, to see that applies to your class. If it does, go to the Respondus LockDown Browser help and information page within the GHC D2L Student Guide.

GHC Proctored Testing:

Registering for Online Testing

On the day of the exam, please bring a picture ID for check in at the testing center. In addition, you must have your GHC email address and password to access D2L.

Registration for students is through SCORE. After logging in, click on Enroll in Online Class Test Session. If you have problems registering for a test session, contact the Testing Center at

Testing for students who live beyond commuting distance to GHC

Your instructor will let you know if your online class requires proctored tests. Students are responsible for finding a proctoring institution for their tests. Students must complete the required GHC Proctor Agreement PDF Form. Directions for submitting the form are included on the form; not following the directions can delay approval of test proctors. Find that form and more information at the eLearning Remote Testing page.

If you need further information or have a conflict with times or locations, please contact the GHC Testing Coordinator at

eCore Students:

eCore midterm and final exam dates are different from those of GHC Online. Students taking eCore courses must review the eCore Academic Calendar for the most updated information. There are specific proctoring requirements and testing options for exams in eCore courses. If you are currently taking an eCore course, please read the information on the eCore Proctored Exam Information page. You will need to scroll down on that page to view all the information and testing options. The GHC testing centers at Cartersville and Rome offer test sessions for the state-wide eCore program. Please note that the Testing Services Department at Georgia Highlands charges a $25 testing fee for eCore students.
