In-Person Exam Proctoring:

The student is responsible for identifying a proctor who meets the required qualifications. If assistance is needed to locate a proctor, the student must communicate with the HCC Online office. Once a proctor is identified, the student will add their contact and course information to the In-Person Proctor Agreement Form before sending the form to the anticipated proctor for completion. The proctor will then complete, sign, and submit the In-Person Proctor Agreement Form, along with verification of their degree or license, by email to the HCC Online office at onlineproctor@highlandcc.edu. Providing false information is subject to HCC's policy for Academic Dishonesty.

Virtual Exam Proctoring:

Virtual proctoring is available using Honorlock. Students will complete the Agreement Form for Honorlock Virtual Proctoring, as well as watch the Honorlock Student Use video. Honorlock proctoring allows the student to test from their location, using a laptop or desktop computer and the Google Chrome Internet browser. During testing, students are monitored and recorded with video and audio. No testing appointment is required for virtual proctoring; once approved, testing is available 24/7 within the exam dates. A fee of $9.00 must be paid, to Honorlock, by the student, at the time of each exam. The Student Agreement Form for Honorlock Virtual Proctoring is returned to the HCC Online office at onlineproctor@highlandcc.edu. Providing false information is subject to HCC's policy for Academic Dishonesty.

If I test at a HCC Center, do I still need to fill out the proctor form?

  • Yes. The requested center will not receive your proctor information to take the test if no proctor form is emailed to onlineproctor@highlandcc.edu.

What if I can not make it to a Highland office?

  • Review the virtual proctoring option with Honorlock (fees required).
  • Ask your local library about proctoring services they provide.
  • Check with your local college or university Testing Center for options.
  • Communicate with your local school district administration about proctoring services they provide.

How much does proctoring cost?

  • For all current HCC students, in-person proctoring services provided at HCC offices do not have a cost.
  • Any fees incurred with in-person proctoring services, outside of HCC, will be the responsibility of the student.
  • Virtual proctoring options require a fee of $9.00 per test, that will be paid by the student directly to Honorlock.

What do I do if I need accommodations during testing?

  • Please complete the Self-Identification Form at the start of your course. An Accessibility Coordinator will contact you about documentations and accommodation options. Accommodation arrangements are communicated to your instructor.

Can I reuse my proctor form I completed last semester, if I will be using the same proctor?

  • No. HCC students are required to fill out a proctor form each semester, even when retaking the same course. 
  • If students are taking two 8-week courses consecutively, students will turn in a proctor form for each individual course. 

When should I schedule my proctored exam?

  • Schedule an appointment with your in-person proctor at least one week before the testing date. You should not expect to be granted extensions for late or missed scheduling.
