We will only be proctoring tests for Va Western students enrolled in Va Western classes who are unable to take their tests at home, or for Va Western students who have certain testing accommodations that cannot be accomplished at home.

All other testing has been suspended, including the Virginia Placement Test. (Click here for more information.)
