Proctored testing may be required in some online and Blended Learning courses, particularly math courses. A "suitable proctored environment" is an environment directly monitored by an instructor, testing center administrator, or other learning provider, in a physical or virtual setting, and approved by faculty. While the proctors must be approved by the instructor, some suitable proctors may include Tri-C assessment centers, other accredited college or university testing centers, public libraries, and military education centers. If the testing center requires a fee, it is the student's responsibility to pay.
