What is a Proctor?


A proctor is a person who supervises or monitors students during an exam.

Who can proctor an exam?

A proctor must not be related to the student and there should be no relationship between the proctor and the student that could call into question the impartiality of the proctor (e.g. spouse, family member, relative, business partner, personal tutor, etc.).

Typically, acceptable proctors include teachers, librarians, community leaders, etc.

All proctors must be approved by the Sun West Distance Learning Centre.
