Test Proctoring

Proctored Event

In order to verify student identity and ensure academic integrity, students enrolled in online courses are required to participate in at least one proctored graded event per course.

1. Instructor Scheduled Proctor Event

Lanier Technical College strongly encourages students to take advantage of the instructor-scheduled proctored events which are listed on the course syllabi. There is no cost for the instructor-schedule event.

2. Instructor Approved Proctor

In the event extenuating circumstances prevent the student from participating in the instructor-scheduled event, the following options are available at the discretion of the instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to make the appropriate arrangements upon receiving instructor approval.

  • Arrange an appointment with an instructor-approved proctor. Approved proctors include persons who are not related to the student:
    • A faculty member or administrator of an regionally-accredited university or college
    • A school superintendent, principal, or counselor
    • A librarian
    • A commissioned officer whose rank is higher than the student’s own (for students in the military only)
  • Have the event proctored by another Technical College. Contact information for other Technical Colleges.
3. ProctorU

If the instructor allows, the student may schedule the exam through ProctorU during the time posted on the syllabus. This will be at the student’s expense based on the time limit of the exam, which is payable directly to ProctorU.
