Proctored Exams

Proctoring Requirements

Each online course requires one proctored assessment (a proctored exam for most courses or a proctored speech for communications courses). Math courses may require more than one proctored assessment. Proctored assessments may be administered at any Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC) location, at a pre-approved off-campus facility, or via ProctorU online services. Students within 30 miles of an OTC facility must take their assessment there or via ProctorU.

All off-campus facilities must be in accordance with the OTC proctoring specifications and must be pre-approved by OTC Online. Examples of off-campus facilities include professional librarians at a public library, high school or college level administrators, testing control or unit education officers at U.S. military bases or U.S. embassy officials. Examples of unacceptable proctors are relatives, instructors, clergy and employers.

ProctorU services may be used by any online student at their own expense.*
