Proctor Information

Some courses require students to utilize a proctor to take course exams.  A proctor is an individual selected by the student and approved by the course instructor to administer and monitor tests for online courses throughout the semester.  Please be aware that some proctors do charge for proctoring services, this charge is the responsibility of the student. Each student must follow the following guidelines set by WSC when selecting a proctor:
1.      Proctors may not be a family member
2.      Approved proctors include*:

  • Librarian
  • Teacher
  • School Administrator
  • High School Counselor

*Please note that some students may not have access to the above.  If this occurs, the instructor may allow proctors with a professional background, this is up to the discretion of the instructor.  WSC reserves the right to deny the students choice of proctor at any time.
It is the instructor's responsibility to ensure that each student receives a proctor form at the beginning of the semester.  Many instructors post this form on their Blackboard course page.
Any questions regarding proctors should be directed to the instructor of your course.
