Proctoring Policy

Proctoring is available by appointment only and availability is determined on a case by case basis. The service is only open to Nicholls students and faculty. Requests must be submitted to the Head of the Research and Instruction department at least one week in advance. Once approved, the department head will assign a research librarian to proctor the test. There is no charge for this service.

Due to limitations of the library facilities, a quiet and distraction-free testing environment cannot be guaranteed. Use of Library computers is on a first come, first served basis and will not be held for exams. Students are allowed to bring their own laptops and connect to the University’s wireless network to take their exams.

The Library cannot accommodate large groups of testing students. No more than three students will be accepted in any one time slot, and no more than three students will be accepted for a single exam.

The following requirements apply:

  • Students must bring a valid photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or military ID).
  • All necessary forms or test materials must be given to the librarian before testing begins.
  • Time limits or test specifications as provided by the instructor will be enforced.

The Library reserves the right to discontinue proctoring service for any student.

This policy may be changed or updated as needed.
