Yes, students who are not in the Chicago area in the quarter they would like to test may arrange to take the exam in absentia.
Students are responsible for finding a suitable proctor or testing center to administer the exam. Proctors cannot be a relative, friend, employee, employer, or someone with whom the student has a personal relationship. Further, students are also responsible for any fees the proctor may charge. To request a proctor, you must complete the Proctor Request Form, and submit it to the Office of the University Registrar by no later than the end of the second week of the quarter.
There is an additional $80 fee for taking an exam in absentia. This fee will be assessed to your bursar account along with the $70 fee for the exam.
