If a professor requires an exam to be taken in person and the student lives more than 60 miles from the University, the student may be required to arrange for someone to proctor the exam. It is the student’s responsibility to locate and obtain approval for a proctor a minimum of three weeks prior to the first proctored exam.
The student is responsible for any fees associated with the attainment of a proctor or proctoring service.
Please refer to the Procedure for Proctored Exams for Online Courses for detailed information on the process for undergraduate courses. Graduate students should refer to their online course curriculum and contact their professor and academic advisor for questions regarding proctored exams for online courses.
If an external proctor is necessary for your online course, please complete the Exam Proctor Approval form at the beginning of the semester or session. Instructions are included on the form.
A student’s friend or relative may not serve as a proctor. Acceptable proctor options are specified below:
