CIDL Testing Center

All CIDL courses require proctored exams. Students who live in the Norman, OK area can schedule a time to take an exam in our testing center. Otherwise, students may choose another university or community college testing center which needs to be approved by CIDL staff. ProctorU, an online proctoring service, is also an option if your instructor and course allows.
