The deadline to submit a proctor is October 28, 4pm EDT.

You will require a proctor to supervise your in-person final exam if any of the following apply to you:

  • you live more than 100 km from an examination centre.
  • you are writing more than two examinations at a centre other than Waterloo. These exam centres only hold two exam sessions.
  • you cannot write the examination(s) on the scheduled date/time for religious reasons.
  • you are registered with AccessAbility Services and cannot write your exam in their office.  
  • you must reschedule your examination due to circumstances beyond your control (see alternate exam options).
  • you are in active military or diplomatic corps service.

How to find a proctor

You are responsible for finding an appropriate proctor. The proctor MAY NOT: 

  • be related to you in any way (including by marriage or common law),
  • reside at the same address as you,
  • be currently enroled in a Waterloo online course.

We will verify the information the proctor submits to minimize academic integrity issues. Proctors must read English fluently.

Who can proctor:

  • Contact North (122 Centres located in Ontario). Contact North centres are pre-approved.
  • Teachers/educational professionals (active or retired) above the pre-school level. A teacher's certificate may be required.
  • Administrative employees of a university, school, or college
  • Religious institution officials (e.g. priest, rabbi, pastor, minister, nun, monk, or imam)
  • Library staff
  • Human resources staff (only for co-op students)
  • Military officers (only for members of the military and their spouses)
  • Health care workers (for students registered with Waterloo's AccessAbility Services)
  • National College Testing Association sites - United States
  • Education USA Advising Centers (there are over 425 international student advising centers in 178 countries but not all centers offer proctoring services)

What you need to know about submitting your proctor information

You and your proctor will arrange the day and time you will write your exam within the exam time period.

You will submit your proctors name and email address using the form below and we will contact them directly for additional information. The paper exam will be couriered to your proctor in time for your examination, and we will provide your proctor with instructions on how to return the exam to us after it is written.

Waterloo pays proctors $20/hr CAD, and we reimburse for shipping costs to return the examination to us. Students are responsible for any additional fees. Students can also pay the proctor and shipping costs and submit documentation to be reimbursed.

Once you submit the form, you will receive an email confirmation, and we will send an email to your proctor asking them to complete their personal information form. You will receive confirmation by email when that is completed. We will then verify the proctor's eligibility and email you both when the proctor is approved, or in the case where the proctor is not eligible.
