Finding A Proctor

Enrolled in online or hybrid courses? Find proctoring for all your Boise State exams.

Instructors of online and hybrid courses at Boise State University 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 main Boise State campus. Proctors promote academic fairness and ensure the credibility of online programs. Students are responsible for any fees related to proctored exams. If you use a proctor outside of the Boise State Testing Center, you must get final approval from your instructor. Note: The Boise State University Student Code of Conduct, as well as the Proctored Test Guidelines, apply to all Boise State students regardless of location.
