There Aren't Any Approved Proctors in My Area. What Should I Do?
If your exam is online then you can use the "Take Your Exam Via WebCam Proctor." NOTE: The webcam proctor cannot be used for paper or online+paper exams.
Inviting Someone to Complete a Proctor Application...
The turnaround time for the proctor application process will take up to 30 days due to the extensive vetting process, which includes background checks, follow up questions, memos, etc.
First, review the proctor qualifications. Some examples of potential proctors are local university/community college testing centers, U.S. embassy education officer or military base/station education officer (Cannot charge a proctoring fee), and U.S. military non-commissioned officer in charge or officer in charge of student’s military unit (Cannot charge a proctoring fee).
After you find someone who meets the qualifications, you are strongly encouraged to contact UNC Online to ensure the person you plan to invite meets the UNC Online qualifications. Next, visit (http://online.northcarolina.edu/exams/invite.php) to start the process of inviting them to complete an application. Please send the invitation to the primary contact for the proctor applicant you found. NOTE: It can take up to 30 days for UNC Online to review/research a new proctor application.
After sending the invitation, it is recommended you follow up with the proctor applicant to confirm that they received your invitation and to ensure they submitted an application for review (the link to the application is included in the invitation). You will receive an automated message when their application has been approved or denied.
NOTE: All proctor applicants are subject to approval. Please allow at least 30 days for UNC Online to review and process proctoring applications.
