Students are responsible for selecting a potential proctor. Roommates, fellow students, friends, a spouse, or other family members are not candidates for proctors. A certified proctor is someone who has agreed to uphold a standard or code of ethics and has been approved by NU. Professionals who are government officials, military personnel, public, college or prison librarians, prison educational department employees, human resource personnel, guidance counselors, lawyers, teachers, and clergy will be considered.

Those who have completed the application and been approved by NationsUniversity, please read the Policy for Certified Prison Proctors to learn how to register as a proctor, Click HERE.

The proctor agreement states, “When a student is taking an exam, the proctor must be within supervisory distance of the student.”
