NDSCS-Fargo Test Center

Distance and Online Learning Schedule (starting March 23)

During the Distance and Online Learning weeks (starting March 23rd), NDSCS Test Centers (Wahpeton & Fargo) will not offer face-to-face test proctoring. Instructors are aware students will not have access to a proctor while learning remotely. Students should work with their instructors on proctor requirements.

Students and faculty needing help with accommodated testing should work with Mindi Bessler, Accessibiliy Coordinator. Contact Mindi Bessler at 701-671-2623 or mindi.bessler@ndscs.edu.

For incoming students that would like to schedule placement testing, the Test Center will create Virtual Remote Vouchers for ACCUPLACER testing. Students need high-speed internet, a webcam, and a method to pay the $25 proctor fee to Examity online. Please contact the Test Center (Wahpeton) 701-671-2256 or email ndscs.testcenter@ndscs.edu.


NDSCS-Fargo provides proctoring for online testing and an alternative testing site for students who qualify.
