Exam Proctoring Service

Milton Public Library supports lifelong learning and is happy to help you meet your educational goals. MPL offers exam proctoring for a fee of $30 + HST based on room availability and staffing. Although we check on students occasionally, we do not have the ability to invigilate at this time. Please ensure your educational institution is supportive of MPL's approach.


  1. A minimum of seven (7) days' notice is required.
  2. Although staff will attempt to meet the student's needs, it may not be possible to approve every request.
  3. Exams must be taken within regular library hours and must be completed no later than thirty (30) minutes before closing.
  4. The library will enforce reasonable conditions set forth in the exam materials. Students will be checked on periodically but will not be monitored continuously during an exam.
  5. The library is not responsible for completed exams that do not reach the educational institution by the deadline date.
  6. No special room is available to students taking the exam. A desk will be reserved for them in the silent study room.
  7. Online exams:
    • The library does not offer laptops to students for online exams.
    • The library can offer the use of one of the public computers for an online exam, however:
      • It is in a public area and a quiet environment cannot be enforced.
      • The library cannot guarantee computer connectivity or compatibility with student requirements.
      • Online exams that require modification of public access computer settings cannot be proctored.
    • If a student is permitted to use his / her own laptop, a space may be reserved for them in the Flint Computer Lab but a quiet environment cannot be guaranteed.

If you would like to have an exam proctored, please complete the online request form.
