Choosing a Proctor

Proctor Criteria

All students (including returning students) must submit proposed proctor information each semester. To be a proctor, the individual must meet at least one of the following criteria, and may not be related to (by blood, marriage, or other legal relationship), be a peer, report to, have equivalent title or responsibilities with, the individual enrolled in the course.

If you live in Illinois, you may be able to take your exams at the University of Illinois facility in Grayslake (Judy Lorenz Hill / 847-665-4006 /jhill@ucenter.org).

Fill out and submit this online form to begin the proctor approval process.

The proctor will be responsible for receiving the exam, locking the exam in a secure place, following the specific guidelines for proctoring the exam (i.e., time frame, open or closed book/notes, use of calculators, etc.), and for delivery of the exam back to our office. Proctors must be available on all exam dates. In the event you need to change your official proctor, you must contact your testing coordinator at least two weeks in advance of your exam. There must be time for a new proposed proctor to go through the approval process.

Please note that submission of proposed proctor information grants your consent to provide all necessary contact information to your proposed proctor. If you do not want our office to provide some portion of your contact information to your proctor, please e-mail Frank Hoskinson at fhoskins@illinois.edu with your specific request.

Please contact the Office of Online and Professional Engineering Programs at 217-333-6634 if you have trouble locating a suitable proctor.
