On Testing

This course requires students to take tests through a testing center or test proctor.

All tests are on paper and timed (1 hour for regular exam and 2 hours for the final exam).


  • Students will need to contact the closest BMCC testing center to schedule an appointment.
  • Students in LaGrande can contact the EOU testing at 541-962-3788 to have tests proctored there.
  • Students can request to take exams outside of the BMCC area by filling out the BMCC Proctor Request Form. The request needs to be completed a minimum of 72 hours prior to the date the exam is to be completed.  Students are responsible for any additional costs that a proctor may charge for testing.
