Special Exams

Occasionally we host special exams requiring a proctor for University of Rochester staff, students (studying abroad) or exchange students. We also host special exams for students from other Universities. Graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to take these special exams. Vicki Mullen can be contacted regarding these special requests. Proctors for these exams are hired on an as needed basis.

We do not host make up exams for University of Rochester students taking University of Rochester classes. We ask that the students make arrangements with their instructors or TA.

The following fees are charged:

  • One to two hours $45.00
  • Two to three hours $60.00
  • Three to four hours $75.00

Five dollars less if the student is a University of Rochester student.

Any questions can be referred to Vicki Mullen, special testing coordinator, by email at or by visiting 312 Lattimore Hall.


Parking is free and open to all test takers on Saturdays. If you are testing for a Monday exam, please stop at the information booth on Wilson Boulevard and purchase a parking pass for $4.00. See the parking website for more information.
