Scheduling a Proctored Exam

The Holladay Center for eLearning provides test proctoring services
for students who are enrolled in MCC and/or MSVCC courses.

All proctored exams will be scheduled through SmarterProctoring. SmarterProctoring is located in the left-hand menu of your Canvas course. View the SmarterProctoring guide for scheduling assistance. If you need additional assistance in scheduling an exam, you may contact the Holladay Center for eLearning at 601-484-8669 during our hours of operation.  

In order to ensure a student has adequate time to complete his or her proctored exam, the Holladay Center for eLearning will not administer any tests 45 minutes prior to closing. Monday/Wednesday/Friday the last appointment accepted will be 5:15pm; Tuesday/Thursday 6:15pm. Anyone who arrives at the center after these times will not be tested and will be required to make a new appointment.
