Testing and Exams
If you are a distance student, exams for your course can be facilitated several different ways.
Some courses may require a proctor for exams. Look for an email from the Student and Faculty Services office to see if you are required to find a proctor. In order to accommodate all testers, we ask that the Examination Proctor Agreement be submitted by the proctor as early in the semester as possible. We ask that the student submit the form if they plan on using Examity or the Manhattan, Kansas, Global Campus Testing Center. This form must be submitted every semester to make sure all contact information and choices are up to date.
Choosing Your Proctor
Most proctor services require students to pay a fee, and it is recommended that you ask about fees when searching for your proctor. Any testing fees will be the responsibility of the student. Following are some possible sources to find a proctor.
- Testing facility at a university or community college campus. (Please reference the NCTA site for some available options. This list is not an exhaustive list of acceptable testing centers.)
- County agent (Extension Office)
- Adult learning center
- Sylvan Learning Center/Huntington Learning Center (or equivalent)
- Military base representative (if military personnel are overseas/deployed, we will approve on a case-by-case basis)
Or the following at-home option for online exams (not for use with paper-based exams):
- Examity (online exam proctoring service)
- Webcam equipment and testing cost will be at the student's expense. The fees are $13.50 for a one hour exam, $20.50 for an exam over one hour and an additional $5.00/hour fee for exams scheduled within 24 hours.
- View the Examity Student Quick Guide and video tour.
- Please note: Examity can only be used for electronic exams. Please reference your course syllabus to see how your exams are administered. All engineering and statistics courses have paper exams at this time.

Exam Proctoring Expectations
- Proctors who do not fit the list of appropriate proctors will be refused.
- Proctors may expect payment for this service.
- Discuss the number of exams and length of each with your proctor, as it requires a time commitment.
- Verify your proctor will be available for all of your exams.
- Your proctor must agree to return exams in a timely manner.
After Finding Your Proctor
- Have your proctor complete the Examination Proctor Agreement.
- Submit your proctor form as soon as classes begin. Failure to do so will slow your course progression.
- Confirmation will be sent to you and your proctor upon approval.
