Proctored Exams

If proctored exams are required in your course and you cannot come to one of the pre-arranged exam times at FIT, you will need to arrange for a proctor in your area in cooperation with your professor. A proctor can be any reputable professional person, acceptable to the professor, who is not related to you, and with whom the faculty member can communicate directly via phone as well as fax and/or email. Examples include staff at another college's testing center, a teacher or librarian, a church secretary, a corporate trainer or office manager, etc. Arranging for an exam proctor early in your online course is strongly recommended. Please contact your professor to make arrangements.
