Offsite Proctoring

Based on OHIO’s spring semester strategy, OHIO Testing Services plans to resume operations on January 19, 2021 in Bromley Hall. Please note that the availability of off-campus testing, or alternate proctors, may be subject to change during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We recommend that you contact OHIO Testing Services as soon as possible to confirm if a location or alternate proctor of your choosing is available. 


OHIO Testing Services offers off-campus testing options for students who are unable to take their examinations at one of the OHIO campus locations. Students may seek approval for an alternate proctor or an alternate testing center.


Ohio University Faculty, Staff, and Students are eligible.

How to Request

    • If you are taking multiple exams, you will need to submit a form for each of your exams.
  • 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.

Off-campus testing in a testing center
