Proctors verify that exams are administered under the proper conditions. Some online classes require the midterm and the final exams be taken at a proctored site.

A proctor is someone who is employed full-time in education. Relatives, employers, co-workers, church leaders, or anyone with a personal or business connection to you or your family are NOT approved proctors. There are several proctor sites Ohio University works with listed below. You will need to complete the proctor form if testing with a college other than Ohio University. If scheduling with an Ohio University campus, you only need to contact that campus to schedule your appointment. All testing materials will be forwarded prior to exam date to each regional campus. In order to maintain the highest degree of integrity for Ohio University, we reserve the right to decline any person whom we feel could be a potential conflict of interest as a proctor.

How Proctoring Works

  1. You select the proctor site that is most convenient to you. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL THE SITE AND MAKE A RESERVATION FOR TESTING.
  2. At least 10 days before your exam, fill out and submit the online form to notify Ohio University of your proctoring arrangement. The form is available here: proctor form.
  3. If you are planning to use a proctoring site OTHER than those on the list below, see the "Using an Alternate Proctor Site" information in the column to the right.
  4. We will send exams to the proctor site.
  5. You take the exam as scheduled and the completed exam will be sent to Ohio University by the proctor site.

A Few Things You Need to Know About Proctor Sites:

  • Proctor sites MAY charge fees for their services. You are responsible for paying all fees for proctoring. We work to provide sites that are free or charge minimal fees. The list below includes the fee charged by the site. If you plan to use an alternate site, when you call for an appointment you should ask if a fee is charged.

  • You must complete the exam in an educational facility. (No proctoring may take place at a private residence.

  • You must schedule and reserve a testing date for EACH proctored exam even if you return to the same proctor for the second exam.

  • If you have any questions regarding suitable proctors, contact examproctor@ohio.edu or call 740.593.2902 or 1.888.551.6446.

  • If you would like to schedule an exam with a proctor other than with Ohio University (see Alternate Proctor info in column at right), make sure to submit the online proctor form to notify eLearning OHIO of your proctoring arrangement at least 10 days before your exam date so we can verify the site and provide the appropriate exam information to that site.
