Locating a Proctor
Professors of online and hybrid courses at UT Dallas often require their students to take proctored examinations. A proctor is an individual who agrees to monitor an exam for a student who is unable to travel to the UT Dallas campus. Proctors promote academic fairness and ensure the credibility of online programs. Students are responsible for any fees related to proctored exams.

Libraries are not approved testing facilities. Exam proctors may not have any family or personal relationship with the student.
Once the Testing Center site has been approved and you have received an email confirmation from the UT Dallas Testing Center, please confirm your appointment with your approved testing site. It is always a good idea to contact your chosen testing site and verify that the exam was received and confirm your appointment.
We strongly recommend you start this process early, most Testing Center sites require documents be submitted at least 15 days prior to the exam date. Many Testing Center sites will not allow students to make reservations without receiving exam materials and application.
