Request for ProctorApproval 

Important: Spring 2020 (2203) Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the College’s transition to remote learning and work for Spring 2020, the only available option for remote proctoring for MDC Online proctored exams is ProctorU. The MDC Online remote proctor request process has been suspended until further notice. 

Please be advised, due to COVID-19, the College has provided students the following guidance:

Students will not be responsible for any fees associated with ProctorU or other remote testing (applies to Spring 2020 only).

  • Faculty will decide whether or not to administer a proctored final exam in their online classes.
  • Check with your instructor, course messages, course announcements, and/or your course syllabus for information specific to your class.
  • If a proctored final exam is required, students must use ProctorU to complete their proctored exams — this is the only option available for students to complete their proctored final exams remotely. Exams are now available on ProctorU's registration site.

Please note that ProctorU is not supported by Chromebooks, mobile phones, and/or tablets.

Check your MDC Student Email and Blackboard for updates and information on using ProctorU. Review the links below for more information:


Please visit the MDC Online Testing Information Page for more information. 

 

The proctor can be a Testing Department/Center at a regionally accredited college or university (preferred), faculty members of regionally accredited colleges or universities, high school counselors and principals, human resources and educational training staff members, commercial testing centers such as Sylvan and Kaplan, and military educational officers. 

Proctors must have an institution/organization/company email address, as the Virtual College prohibits the sending of exam information and passwords to free or residential email address, including, but not limited to: aol.com, bellsouth.net, att.net, verizon.net, sprint.net, hotmail.com, gmail.com, yahoo.com, ymail.com, etc.

Your classmate, manager/supervisor, co-worker, relative, or friend is NOT a qualified proctor, and may NOT proctor your exams. 

Exams must be administered in an educational or professional environment, such as a classroom or the proctor's office. Any test proctored in a private residence will be deemed invalid. Virtual College proctored exams are computer exams; therefore, make sure that your proctor is able to administer computer-based exams. 

Be sure to provide accurate contact information for your proctor, as well as accurate course information. Inaccurate or incomplete information may lead to a delay in approval and may result in your request being denied. You must submit your request before the posted deadlines to allow enough time to approve your proctor. 

The MDC Virtual College will have final approval on proctor selection.
