Scheduling a Proctored Exam
Online students are responsible for clicking the SmarterProctoring button in their online course to schedule a proctored exam. This should be done as early in the semester as possible to ensure a date/time that works best for the student's schedule.
All online courses require between 1-3 proctored exams, and exam dates are posted in each course. For instructions about how to use SmarterProctoring, please view the resources below.

Out-Of-State Proctor Requests:
If you live outside of the state of Mississippi, you have two options for testing:
- Virtual Testing -- Schedule your exam as normal through the SmarterProctoring button in your class, but select the Virtual Proctor. Please ask your instructor for permission to use the virtual proctor if it is not available. This service typically charges $15-30 per exam, and requires the student to have a webcam and microphone.
- Off-Campus Proctor Request -- If you live outside of Mississippi, you can test at your local college or university. Fill out the following form (proctor fills out the top portion/student fills out the bottom portion). The completed form can be faxed to 601.403.1009 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a copy of the proctor's school-issued picture ID card . Allow 24-48 hours for approval. Once the request is approved/denied, eLearning will e-mail both the student and the proctor. Off-Campus Proctor Request
