Off-Campus Testing: For Test Takers

If your program has identified you as a candidate to take the ETS® Major Field Tests off-campus using a remote proctoring service, you will find important information here. Testing off-campus allows you to test remotely in your home or another convenient location with Internet access and a webcam.

By taking one of the ETS Major Field Tests, you enable your institution to get the data it needs to prove the effectiveness of your degree program — ensuring that you and future students earn the highest quality degree. Institutions use the Major Field Tests to measure students' mastery of their chosen field of study, assess the effectiveness of major programs of study, and improve curriculum and student learning outcomes.

Follow the instructions in the email you received to schedule your appointment with the remote proctoring service. Please make sure you follow the instructions and time lines carefully. If you have been instructed by your institution to pay for the test and/or remote proctoring session, you will be asked to pay via credit card or PayPal at the time you schedule your appointment.

Once your test appointment is scheduled, be sure to review the following pages to ensure that you have everything you need and are properly prepared for test day:
