Students of other College or Universities testing at CSI

The CSI Testing Center provides testing opportunities for students of other colleges and universities to take their exams in a secure and proctored environment. Anyone who would like to take their exam at CSI must first contact their school to inform them of the desire to take an exam at the College of Southern Idaho. Many schools require their students to fill out a form so they can get the necessary information sent to CSI.

CSI distance proctoring for other colleges or universities requires the following:

  • A $20 proctoring fee, paid at the time of the exam (cash or check)
  • A valid photo ID such as a driver’s license or current/valid school student ID card
  • CSI does not allow open-book exams or students to take an exam on their laptop

Students who are unsure if their exam materials have been received by CSI, please contact the Testing Center before showing up for your exam. If CSI does not have your exam material, you will need to contact your school. Please be aware that CSI will not pay for shipping charges for an exam or any exam materials. If there is any cost associated with an exam, the student will be responsible for arranging payment with their school.
