Exam & Proctor Requests
Do I have to come to campus to take exams? Most exams are facilitated online through each class site. However, some courses require testing to be completed in-person at an SLCC Instructional Testing Center or facilitated at another remote location by an approved proctor.
Refer to the instructions below for additional information. It is ultimately the decision of each instructor to allow you to use a specific proctor.

Testing Center Policies
The Instructional Testing Center provides a secure area for the administration of all exams. Adherence to the following rules will protect you from the perception of cheating and help ensure an efficient testing experience.
- You must present a College ID (OneCard) as identification to take an exam. Sorry, no exceptions.
- If you arrive late for an evening appointment, please be advised that you will not be allowed to test if less than 50% of your allotted testing time is remaining.
- To ensure test integrity and a quiet environment for all, you must not bring any personal or unauthorized items into the testing room. These include, but are not limited to: children, food, drinks, sunglasses, hats, outerwear (such as jackets and hoodies), purses, backpacks, cell phones, pagers, headphones, and any other electronic devices.
- Only items authorized by your instructor are permitted in the testing room, e.g., calculators, notes, or books.
- All personal items are to be stored in an assigned locker. You will be issued a locker key upon check-in and asked to secure your personal items.
- You will be continuously monitored by video, physical walk-throughs, and the observation window during your test. All testing sessions are audio and video recorded.
- Once a test has been issued, you may not leave the testing area without first ending the test.
- Restroom breaks during testing are not allowed. Please use the restroom prior to checking in.
- Do not remove the privacy screen attached to the computer monitor.
- If you have difficulty during a test, please inform a proctor of the problem.
- You must not talk to other test-takers or refer to their screens, testing materials, or written notes in the testing room.
- Any blatant or suspicious issues of academic dishonesty will be noted. You will be asked to leave and referred to your instructor for appropriate disciplinary action. (Refer to the SLCC Student Code of Conduct for additional information.)
I live outside Salt Lake County
If you live outside of Salt Lake County you may arrange for a proctor. A proctor is an individual not associated with you who can supervise a test/exam. A proctor is present to ensure a secure testing environment free of distractions and resources that might compromise the integrity of the exam.
A new proctor agreement must be approved for each course and semester. You must secure a proctor within the first six (6) weeks of the semester for a full semester course and within two (2) weeks for a half semester course. Allow at least 2-3 working days for the proctor information to be processed and approved by the instructor. Please note that earlier deadlines will apply if course exams are scheduled prior the six-week point. It is your responsibility to submit your request in keeping with your exam schedule.
You will need to make arrangements with the proctor for specific times and dates to take the exam. Some proctoring locations/personnel may require a fee for proctoring services. You are responsible for any proctoring fees.
Finding a Proctor
You are responsible to identify a proctor to facilitate an test/exam. Suitable proctors include personnel associated with:
- College or University Testing Centers
- Public Libraries
- Military Education Centers
The proctor must have Internet access and understand instructions written in English. S/he must also provide a business address, phone number and email address. Public email addresses (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) will not be accepted.
All exams will be sent by email or regular mail directly to the proctor. The exams will be sent a few days prior to the listed exam dates.
