A proctor must be unbiased toward you. No relative, friend, friend of the family, neighbor, or co-workers are allowed to serve as a proctor.
A proctor must have an email address associated with their place of employment. Applications may be rejected with domains ending in @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, @hotmail.com, etc.
In all circumstances, assessments must be proctored at the address listed in an application and a proctor must be able to monitor you while you complete the assessment.
Students are not allowed to take an exam at a private residence.
Students need to register a proctor with the Test Center for each exam.
If a student needs to switch or change proctors during the semester a student may submit new proctor information to our office and the previous proctor will be removed.
Proctor applications must be submitted at least 7 calendar days prior to the first scheduled assessment to allow for proper approval and vetting.
