Exams - Correspondence Courses

To ensure academic standards, many correspondence courses require students to write a mid-term and/or final examination in person in a monitored test centre (must show either Seneca or government-issued photo identification). Any 'in-person' exam requirements will be communicated to you in your Welcome package so that you know well in advance. You can write your exam(s) at any available time between the start and end date of your course at one of our Test Centres or, if you don't live near one of our campuses, you can make arrangements to write your exam(s) at an approved centre almost anywhere in the world. See the Proctored Exams section below.

Writing at Seneca

For correspondence courses you do not need to call ahead, nor complete a form. Simply go to the Seneca Test Centre of your choice, making sure to arrive at least 3 hours before their closing time. When you arrive, specify that you are writing a correspondence exam (mid-term or final) and give your course code. You must show either Seneca or government-issued photo ID (e.g. driver's license or passport) and then you will be seated to write. After your exam is done, it will be forwarded to our office and then onto your instructor for grading. 

Proctored Exams

If you live more than 100 kilometres from our campuses, you can make arrangements to write examinations at an approved centre almost anywhere in the world. Contact a local college or university to inquire about their proctoring/invigilating services, then complete and return the Invigilation Request form to  dl.exam@senecacollege.ca. This form should be received at our office no later than 3 weeks prior to your exam date. Please be advised that you will be responsible for any charges incurred for proctoring at the college/university that you book with, including costs for your proctor to ship back the completed exam(s) to our office using a traceable courier. Questions about this can be sent to  dl.exam@senecacollege.ca.
