Proctor Requirements for Non-degree Seeking Students

As a Non-Degree Seeking Student taking online courses in the School of Allied Health Professions at UNMC you will be required to have a Proctor. In order to issue a grade for an online course, some exams and assignments will need to be administered and supervised by a proctor. Students are responsible for acquiring their own proctors. Students will identify those proctors during the application process and must submit the proctor's name and email address on the application. SAHP Academic and Student Affairs will contact the proctors directly to complete the necessary paperwork.

To review the guidelines and responsibilities for a proctor and download the agreement form click on the link. PROCTOR FORM.
