Proctor Requirements for Non-Degree Seeking Students

As a Non-Degree Seeking student taking online courses in the College of Allied Health Professions (CAHP) at UNMC, you might 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. CAHP Enrollment Management & Student Affairs will contact the proctors directly to complete the necessary paperwork.

Review the guidelines and responsibilities for a proctor and download the agreement form.
