Exam Proctoring Services


Some online or distance education courses offered at other institutions require students to take proctored exams. The course instuctor will indicate this via the course syllabus, email, or class announcement. Not all online courses may required proctored exams.

A proctor is a person that will supervise a student while they are taking an exam. Proctors are used to ensure academic integrity during the testing session. It is the student's responsibility to find and schedule a proctor in a timely fashion to take their exam.

The Registrar's Office offers exam proctoring for George Fox University students only. Currently, we are approved to proctor exams from Brigham Young University..
