A proctor is an approved person that administers an exam to a BMCC student and agrees to fulfill the proctor responsibilities required by BMCC. The proctor will verify a student’s identity by checking a photo ID and will ensure academic integrity guidelines during exams are followed (e.g., no notes, textbooks, outside assistance, etc.).
Who can be a proctor?
Acceptable proctors include military/industry education or testing centers, school/college counselors, administrators, and teachers or local librarians. Relatives, direct supervisors, co-workers, or anyone the student has a personal relationship with, are NOT qualified proctors and will be denied. Any individual who cannot provide a suitable testing environment will also be denied as a proctor. To be approved to administer exams, a proctor must be affiliated with a suitable organization, such as a college, school, library or educational testing facility. Contact information provided for the proctor must be affiliated with this organization (e.g., phone number and email address).
BMCC reserves the right to deny any proctor or assign proctors to students as necessary. If you have questions about an individual’s suitability, contact Wendy Heyrman, Academic Specialist for Online Learning and Recruitment at (906) 248-8403 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Kendra Mills, Academic Manager for Online Learning & Marketing Specialist at (906)248-8402 or email email@example.com for clarification.
