Exam proctoring

You can book an appointment at most Mississauga Library locations to write proctored exams for distance education, online courses, or professional certifications. Hazel McCallion Central Library and Living Arts Pop Up Library are not available.

Not available on Sundays and limited availability on Saturdays.

At least four weeks prior to your exam, email to book your appointment. In your email include:

  • Date, time and length of your exam (3 hour limit)
  • Any specific space, supervision or equipment requirements
  • At which library locations you would like to write your exam, please provide at least three options, as not all locations may have availability

Please note that due to staffing and space limitations we cannot ensure that students taking an exam are monitored and cannot guarantee a silent space for the examination. If you require a library computer to take your exam, please let us know ahead of time.

If you are looking to complete an online citizenship test a proctor is not required. If you need access to a computer with a camera and microphone for your test, you can borrow a circulating Chromebook using your library card.


You can book an appointment for up to three hours. An exam proctoring appointment costs $50 plus tax.

On the day of your exam, please bring your payment and photo ID. You can pay by cash, but credit or debit are preferred.
