The Mechanics' Institute Library provides its members and nonmembers with a convenient place to take a proctored examination for a school, college, or professional association. We administer both paper and online exams with computers on site.
Proctored examinations may be taken from Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Exam proctoring fees are as follows:
- ≤3 hours = $120 members / $190 nonmembers
- 3.5 – 6 hours= $205 members / $295 nonmembers
- 6.5 – 8 hours = $260 members / $390 nonmembers
To reserve your preferred time, please contact us at least three weeks in advance of the exam date.
We do not invoice for exam fees. If an exam sponsor requires completed paper exams be returned by standard mail, a postage paid 9"x12" envelope must be provided.
Please confirm that Mechanics' Institute is an approved proctor with your organization in advance of your scheduled examination. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will respond to your request within three business days.
You may request to reschedule your exam up until three days (72 hours) before your scheduled appointment by emailing email@example.com. Rescheduling fewer than three days before your appointment may result in forfeiting your exam proctoring fee.
If you want to cancel your exam, you may do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org up until three days (72 hours) before your scheduled appointment. If an exam is canceled fewer than three days before your exam appointment, or if you do not appear for the appointment, exam fees will not be refunded.
