LC State Distance Students
As an LC State distance student you might have proctored exams in your class. You have two options for proctoring. You can make an appointment with one of our Preapproved Outreach Centers, or you can find a qualified proctor and submit the Proctor Request Form.
Preapproved Outreach Centers
If you are unable to go to the LC State campus Testing Center in Lewiston or a pre-approved Outreach Center you will need to find a qualified proctor and then submit a Proctor Request Form.
Family members, friends, bosses, co-workers, or personal acquaintances will never be approved as a proctor, even if they fulfill one of the qualifications. A qualified proctor must hold one of the following positions:
- College & Universities
- Testing Center
- Department Head
- Professional staff member of the adult or continuing education office
- Counseling Center
- Private or Public Schools
- Principal or Vice Principal
- City or County
- Certified Librarian - Ensure the person you are requesting to proctor your exam meets their state's requirements for Certification before submitting the Proctor Request Form.
- Civil Service Examiner
- Judge of a Court of Law
- County Extension Agent
- United States Armed Forces Educational Services Officer
- Clergy member
It is the students responsibility to find a proctor that meets one of the above qualifications.
One resource for finding a proctor is to review our Approved Proctor By Location spreadsheet of previously approved proctor locations. This list is just a starting point, you do not have to use a proctor from this list. The spreadsheet is constantly being updated with new locations.
Another resource for finding a Testing Center across the United States is through the NCTA website. Please note, testing sites found on this website are not the only places you can go, this is just one resource to find college Testing Centers.
Rules for Proctor Request Form Submission - Read Carefully Before Submitting the Form.
- All proctored exams must be administered in an educational or professional setting.
- Please check with the proctor site you would like to test at to find out their rules for testing ahead of time.
- Just because your instructor says you can use your book or have notes during the test does not mean that your test site will allow it.
- LCSC students will adhere to the approved test sites rules.
- Students must use a computer provided by the proctor. Students' personal laptops cannot be used.
- Proctors may also be required to download a LockDown Browser. Instructions for this download are sent by the Testing Center to the proctor via email.
- If your chosen proctor cannot download the LockDown Browser, if it is required, you will have to find a different proctor.
- A Proctor Request Form must be submitted for each separate test you need to take, even if you are using the same proctor.
- Ex. If your class has 4 tests that need proctored, you will fill out the Proctor Request form 4 times, once for each test.
- Please submit this form a minimum of one week prior to opening exam date to ensure your request is processed in time for your test. Requests submitted less that one week prior to the opening date may not be processed in time for the student to test.
Do not delay, get your request in right away!
Proctor requests can be sent in as far ahead of the test as a student wants. Requests will be processed 3 business days prior to the appointment listed on the request. Once processed, an email will be sent to the student confirming the request has been processed.
