Testing and Exams

If you are a distance student, exams for your course can be facilitated several different ways.

Your exams may require a proctor, however some courses do not. 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 ProctorU or the Manhattan, KS Global Campus Testing Center.

Choosing Your Proctor

Some proctoring services may require a testing fee. Any testing fees will be the responsibility of the student.

  • 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
