Off-Site Proctored Exam Process & request form


Instructors, please use the "instructor proctor form" Instructor Proctor Form

Students, please read: proctored or supervised testing is required by some UT instructors and/or programs for online courses. Before proceeding, confirm that proctored testing is required and that off-site testing is permitted. 

Please don't assume that because the course is online — 
(1) that the test will be online or
(2) that an accommodation for testing will be made at the student's location

It is the student's responsibility to confirm online course testing requirements at the start of each term.

**UT defines distant students as a student residing 50 or more miles from UT Campus

form: who, what and when

Who completes the form: students in online courses with instructor permitted off-site proctored testing who also reside 50 or more miles from UT campus or are College Credit Plus students

What is needed: a completed form for each course requiring proctored testing each semester. Please plan to use the same proctor for all your tests for the semester.

When is the form due: within the first 3 weeks of each semester (the first week of summer sessions), or earlier if a test is scheduled.

Students testing outside of the United States will use ProctorU, a third-party online proctor service (students at international locations and with the instructor's written permission.) Not all instructors permit ProctorU, please secure the instructor's written permission before contacting our proctored testing staff. Forward the instructor's email to ProctoredTesting@utoledo.edu. Questions? Please call 866.886.5336.

  On-campus proctoring arrangements are made by the instructor and not UT Online. The Memorial Field House Testing Center (419-530-2011), along with the instructor, manage proctored and make-up testing on-campus.
