Proctored Exam Information

  • If an online professor requires an exam to be proctored or in person and the online student lives too far 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 instructor approval for the proctor.


    The student is responsible for any fees associated with the attainment of a proctor or proctoring service.


    Online students should refer to the online course syllabus and contact the online instructor or academic advisor for details regarding proctored exams.
