Offsite Proctored Procedures
Proctored exams must be taken and supervised at an official testing center at a community college, 4-year college, or university at the student’s expense. A proctored exam is an exam that is overseen by an impartial individual (called a proctor) who monitors or supervises a student while he/she is taking an exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.
