If you plan to hand deliver the exam, please email drctesting@purdue.edu to let staff know. When dropping off the exam, please bring with you a list of the students' names, course, and exam dates as well as enough copies for each student. 

If the exam is an online exam and DOES NOT require a password, please email drctesting@purdue.edu to notify DRC Testing Staff. 

DRC Testing Staff cannot accept exams via email or filelocker. If you are providing the exam digitally, please upload it to your DRC Instructor Portal. When uploading the exam, please be sure to upload the exam for each student and name it "Final Exam - COURSE - INSTRUCTOR NAME" so we know it is the correct file.
