Proctoring exams for non-SFU students

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. Hello,

I'm writing to inquire whether or not I am able to get an exam proctored at
SFU I am NOT an SFU student. I am attending an MBA program through
correspondence and need to write an exam. I need this exam to be proctored
as the school is based in the UK and I live in Surrey.

Does your institution offer this service for non-SFU students?

Your time and attention is much appreciated. Thank you!
