Each instructor will be administering their exam(s) in a face-to-face setting. You may locate the time, day, and location information in your Blackboard online class.

If you not submit your request(s) within the guidelines above, you will be charged the late fee of $40 in addition to the $10 proctoring fee. We will NOT be able to accommodate proctor requests within 48 working hours or less of the scheduled exam date and time
