Proctoring License Renewal Period
Taken from the UNC Online Proctor Licensing Agreement.
Proctoring License Renewal Period. The license renewal period is the 30 day period when the proctor either applies to renew their proctoring license or indicates they wish to discontinue proctoring (otherwise known as to Opt-Out). The proctor’s license remains active during this period at the discretion of UNC Online. Proctors receive a system-generated message when the license has been renewed or deactivated.
UNC Online is responsible for reviewing proctor applications and renewals. All proctor applicants/renewals are subject to approval.
Current licenses do not automatically renew. UNC Online sends out renewal notices via email (to the email address on file) ninety (90) days prior to the license deactivation.
Proctors are responsible for informing UNC Online if their contact details need to be edited. Contact details include: name, email, phone number, address.
Proctor applications/renewals should allow at least thirty (30) days for UNC Online to review and process proctoring applications. The review process may take longer if the proctor does not respond to follow up questions or is located outside the U.S.
Background Check. Proctor applicants and licensed proctors may be required to undergo a background check. Licensed proctors are subject to background check upon renewal of their proctoring license, at the discretion of UNC Online.
Conflict of Interest. Proctors are responsible for understanding that they cannot proctor students if a conflict of interest exists. Examples include but are not limited to: relative, spouse, or partner of the UNC System student or of the UNC System student’s family; co-worker, supervisor, or business associate of the UNC System student or of the UNC System student’s family; friend, roommate, or peer of the UNC System student or of the UNC System student’s family; current or previous athletic coach/trainer/administrator or any member of an athletic staff or personnel who support student athletes (Includes K-12, recreational and/or organized leagues, community college, and college/university athletics); etc.
NOTE: UNC System students may not be UNC Online proctors as this creates a conflict of interest.
In addition, instructors must conform to their campus’ conflict of interest policies with regards to using university space and resources. UNC System employees/instructors cannot charge a fee for proctoring.
