Finding an Off-Campus Proctor


If you are taking BYU-Idaho on-line courses, you may need to take some of your exams with an approved proctor.

Check your course requirements to see if your exams require a proctor.

If you are in Rexburg or the surrounding area we request that you take your tests in one of the BYU-Idaho Testing Centers. Otherwise, you will need to find an approved proctor.  

What is a proctor?

A proctor is a qualified person willing to monitor your exam. They have a responsibility to facilitate fairness and integrity during testing situations. If you are not able to take an exam at the BYU-Idaho testing center, you will need to make other arrangements with a qualified proctor or testing center.


We are in the process of creating a Proctor Certification Form for a Proctor to Qualify.

Who qualifies as a proctor?

Exams must be administered at the proctor's place of business never at the proctor's home or the student's home.

If the proctor is the student's relative, friend, tutor, supervisor, athletic (or assistant) coach, they may not proctor the exam.


  • Staff at an approved testing center
  • A teacher
  • A school or public librarian
  • A school principal or superintendent
  • An employed seminary teacher (not volunteer), seminary principal, or director of an LDS Institute
  • A guidance counselor or member of a counseling staff
  • OR a person approved by BYU-Idaho Testing Services

A qualified Testing Center can be found in the Consortium of College Testing Centers. To find a site in your area click on the image below.

This is not the only place to find a qualified Proctor.

It is the student's responsibility to contact the proctor to set up an appointment to take each individual exam. A seperate request must be submitted to Online Testing for each test.


Proctors or testing centers may charge a fee to administer the exam which the student is responsible to pay.
