Scheduling a Proctored Exam
Online students are responsible for clicking the Proctoring 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 -- HonorLock is an online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your home. You do not have to make an appointment, and HonorLock is available to you at no cost. You will be required to use a webcam and microphone. You will also need to show a photo government-issued ID which should include your name and photo (this could be military, driver's license, college ID, etc.), before taking the exam. If HonorLock is not available in your online course, contact your instructor.
- Off-Campus Proctor Request -- If you live outside of Mississippi, you can test at your local college or university. The cost of this proctoring is determined by that institution, and the student is responsible for whatever those charges might be. Fill out the following form (proctor fills out the top portion/student fills out the bottom portion). The completed form can be 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
