Most exams in online courses are completed in ulearn. However, certain courses require a proctor to administer exams or assessments. For example, in ENG 0001 and challenge exams, you must make proctoring arrangements.
A proctor is an impartial individual who monitors or supervises you while completing the assessment/exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the assessment process.
Making Proctor ArrangementsIf you live near a JWU campus and want to take your assessment/exam on-site, you must contact the appropriate department at each campus (see below) to arrange for a date and time for a proctoring appointment. Otherwise you must make arrangements for an independent proctor.
Complete the Online Learning Proctor Application and Agreement Form and return it to the Office of Online Learning at least two weeks prior to the assessment/exam. The Office of Online Learning will provide the assessment/exam to the campus department during the dates allowed for the assessment by your instructor. It is your responsibility to make sure your proctoring appointment falls within the dates allowed by the instructor.

If you are unable to make arrangements to take an assessment/exam on a JWU campus, you need to arrange for an independent proctor. See the Online Learning Proctor Application and Agreement Form for a list of suitable proctors and proctor requirements.
Once you secure a proctor and make sure that both you and the proctor have completed the necessary information on the form, return the form to the Office of Online Learning at least two weeks prior to the assessment/exam. The Office of Online Learning will provide the assessment/exam to the proctor during the dates allowed for the assessment by your instructor. It is your responsibility to contact your proctor to set up a proctoring appointment for completing the assessment during the dates allowed by the instructor.
Once the Online Learning Proctor Application and Agreement Form has been received, we will contact you within 2-3 business days to let you know if your proctor has been accepted. It is assumed that you will use the proctor for all required assessments/exams for the term. If you need to change your proctor in the middle of the term, a new form must be submitted.
Proctoring FeesProctoring services at a JWU campus are free. Independent proctors may choose to charge a fee and their fees vary. Ask potential proctors about fees before completing the Proctor Application and Agreement Form. Any fees charged by proctors are the responsibility of the student.
