Some Online courses require the use of a Proctor for exams. Students are responsible for finding their own proctor and submitting a proctor form by the end of the first week of classes.
Please be aware that you must present a photo ID (e.g., UW Colleges ID or driver license) to your proctor to confirm your identity when you arrive at the testing site. Proctors are required to check your photo ID before allowing you to take an examination.
There are two options for arranging a proctor for the course exams. The option which applies to you depends on whether you intend to write your exams at one of the UW Colleges' campuses with an IT Support person as your proctor, or you intend to have someone other than an on-campus IT Support person proctor you exams.
It is ESSENTIAL you submit all your proctor information NO LATER than the end of the first full week in the semester! If you have any questions about proctored exams, contact the Office of Distance Education.
If you are a student with a disability and have an approved Individualized Accommodation Plan indicating you need a reader for tests, you will need to find a proctor who is also willing to read your exams to you. In addition to submitting your proctor form, please send an email to the UW Colleges Academic Advisor confirming your proctor is also a reader. We will then provide your proctor with the necessary Reader Expectations for Examinations and Quizzes information. Only students with reader services recommended on UW Colleges approved Individualized Accommodation Plans are eligible for this accommodation service. We will provide your proctor with the Reader Expectations for Examinations and Quizzes.
