Distance Testing


Many colleges, universities and agencies require testing in a proctored environment. The Office of Testing is the university site for the administration of test instruments to off-campus agencies.

Candidates should contact our office for available dates/times and complete the online registration form once instructions are sent to them. You will be required to pay a non-refundable test administration fee.

Please be advised that the Office of Testing is currently offering proctored exams to the general public and distance learning exams for non-WPU students. Please contact us for information on availability of this service at: testcenter@wpunj.edu
