Some instructors required proctored exams in their online courses. Some online courses
may require up to two proctored exams. Your instructor will indicate in the syllabus
if there are any proctored exams for your course.
Proctored exams require students to take an examination in a controlled location under the supervision of a proctor, who monitors students during the exam period. A proctored exam permits instructors to limit student access to certain materials such as books, notes, and the Internet and to verify the identity of the individual taking the exam.
- You may, at your instructor's discretion and for a fee paid by you the student, use ProctorU to take your proctored test any time and anywhere as long as you have internet service, a computer, webcam and microphone. For more information on ProctorU please contact your instructor.
- You may take a proctored WKCTC test for free at any KCTCS college.

Students are to make one appointment for each proctored exam (one appointment per
course exam). Students abusing this privilege may have appointments canceled or may
be denied access to the Testing Center. Please follow the instructions given below.
All appointments are now scheduled online.
Appointments must be scheduled three days (72 hours) in advance of the time you want to take your exam.
Please have the following information available when you schedule your appointment:
- Phone number
- Instructor's name
- Course name, number, and section (Example: CIT 105 B5Z4)
Appointments can be changed or rescheduled using the online system. The system requires changes to be made online at least 72 hours in advance. Once an appointment has been canceled the next available rescheduling slot will be available 72 hours from the cancellation time. We understand that situations arise in which you must cancel your appointment. If cancellations are made with less than 72 hours' notice, we are unable to offer that time slot to other students. For this reason, cancellations and changes can only be made 72 hours in advance. Students who are unable to cancel within the 72 hour period will be considered a "No Show". "No Show" students should reschedule for the next available day and time, but will not be tested unless permission has been sent from the instructor to the Coordinator of Testing and Assessments.
Students arriving late (15 minutes or more) for a testing appointment may not be tested during the scheduled time period. It is the right of the Coordinator of Testing and Assessments to reschedule the student's appointment.
It is the student's responsibility to:
- Check with the instructor prior to the exam for testing materials allowed during the exam. (i.e. textbook, calculator)
- Have an active login and password for Blackboard and other software. The Online Testing Center is not responsible for providing items.
- Provide proper form of photo Identification. (i.e. drivers license, school I.D., state issued I.D.)
- Have a printed class schedule and/or appointment confirmation listing class and instructor information.
Students caught cheating on an exam will be approached by the proctor and informed of the academic dishonesty violation. Students must adhere to the KCTCS Code of Student Conduct 4Bii.
No cell phones or children are allowed in the Testing Center. The Testing Center is to maintain a controlled environment for those completing proctored exams.
Thank you for your time and participation.
