Steps for Obtaining a Proctor at an Alternative Testing Site

Step 1: If you cannot make proctoring arrangements at a TBR institution, work with your instructor to find a proctor at another location.  

The following individuals are typically accepted as alternative proctors:
  • School or public librarian
  • Embassy education officer
  • Military base / station education officer
  • Overseas (military) non-commissioned officer in charge 
  • TBR institution testing center staff
  • Professional testing center personnel
  • School / college counselors
Individuals not allowed to proctor include:
  • Relative
  • Employer or supervisor
  • Tutor
  • Church leader
  • Co-worker
  • Other students
  • Athletic coach
  • Spouse or partner

Step 2: Obtain approval from your instructor in a timely manner. All alternate testing site proctors must be approved prior to testing.


Step 3: Email your alternate testing site and request a proctor. Send the following information:

  • Your name
  • Email address
  • Instructor’s name
  • Instructor’s email address (outside of D2L)
  • Instructor’s phone number
  • Course name
  • Course number
  • Semester and year
  • Date and time proctor appointment is needed

Note: Call the proctor, if you do not get a timely response by email. 


Step 4: Ask the proctor at the alternative site to send an email message directly to your instructor. The message should include the following information:

  • Proctor name
  • Title
  • Place of employment
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Student name
  • Course name
  • Course number

Step 5: Your instructor will notify you when your proctor has made contact. Your instructor will reply to your proctor and send directions, materials, passwords, etc., for your proctored examination or essay. Students are responsible for setting up a time to meet with your proctor.


Step 6: All proctors must be approved by the course instructor in a timely manner prior to the test.
