For Students:

To request a Proctor, please complete the Request a Proctor Form

  • This form is to request a librarian or library staff member to proctor your exam(s).
  • Once submitted, the form will be reviewed by library staff and forwarded to your instructor for approval, if you would like.
  • This form is required before you can schedule an exam appointment.

To schedule an Exam, please complete the Proctoring Appointment Request Form

  • Use this form to request an appointment to have an exam proctored, only if you have already submitted the Proctor Request form.
  • Students must request an appointment at least one week in advance, at a time that is convenient for the Teaching & Research staff. This is to ensure the availability of the proctor and facilities.
  • Walk-ins will be accommodated only if staff schedules allow.
  • Your appointment is NOT confirmed until you have completed this form and have been contacted by a member of the Teaching & Research Staff.

For Instructors:

  • The instructor must provide written guidelines on test administration, such as time limit, whether books/notes/calculators/phones are allowed, etc., as well as instructions on how, where and to whom to send the completed test or notification of test completion.
  • The exam may be proctored by any of the Teaching & Research Department professional staff.
  • The student will be placed in a private room and will be checked on periodically, but not monitored constantly.
  • A library computer will be provided for online exams unless the instructor specifies that the student can use their own computer.
