If you are NOT a MacEwan University student, but you need a quiet supervised space to write an exam, the Exam Services Centre can help you. The services we offer include exam scheduling, distribution, supervision, and collection. After the exam is complete, we will mail it to the proper individual or organization.
Our external clients include:
- post-secondary students who are not MacEwan students
- businesses, institutions and other organizations
Follow these steps to book your exam.
Two weeks prior to the date you’d like to write the exam, submit an External Exam Request form to the Exam Services Centre. There are no exceptions to these timelines. When choosing your date, remember that you cannot schedule an exam during MacEwan's final exam weeks, which take place early to mid-December and early to mid-April each year. See the Academic Schedule for exact dates.
You will receive an email from the Exam Services Centre within five business days of submitting your request. The email will include a map of the campus, the location and time of your exam and other details. Please respond promptly to any questions you might receive from the Exam Services Centre regarding your request.
Arrange to have a copy of the exam provided to the Exam Services Centre five days prior to the confirmed exam date and time. Exams can be emailed, couriered or dropped off in person. Enclose paper-based exams in a sealed envelope. The Exam Services Centre mailing address is: Room 6-224, 10700-104 Avenue, Edmonton, AB T5J 4S2.
Arrive at the Exam Services Centre at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled exam time. We are located in Room 9-204 (located within Room 9-206) in the Robbins Health Learning Centre at the corner of 109 Street and 104 Avenue, Edmonton. View map.
Bring the following items with you to the exam:
- government-issued ID
- a prepaid envelope (Purolator, Fed-Ex, stamps) for the return of any written materials required by you/your institution
- a credit or debit card for paying the exam fee
The Exam Services Centre is not liable for exams that are lost due to postal or shipping issues.
