Proctored Exams


Proctor must either be in the room with the student for the entire duration of their exam or must be able to visually observe the student at all times.


Online Proctor Request System

SCSU Online distance students who cannot use our Testing Center or St. Cloud area SCSU Online  students who are unable to come to our Testing Center during our hours of operation (8:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. Monday through Friday) can submit a proctor request to our office for review and approval. 

Proctor requests must be submitted through our Online Proctor Request System.  When the student logs into the system with their SCSU ID, it will automatically pull up all SCSU Online course information.  In order for a student to submit a proctor request, they will need to know the proctor’s name, job title, email address, phone number, mailing address, and name and address of the proposed testing facility.
