Registration and tuition process for online classes are the same as that for traditional classes except:
Using ProctorU for proctoring (optional) requires a webcam and microphone (for specifics, please check your BBLearn course room or visit WGTC ProctorU tutorial website at www.proctoru.com/portal/westgatech.
A proctored exam is the test that requires the student to be overseen/supervised by an individual called a proctor; the proctor is approved by the instructor. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process much like an instructor would in a face-to-face course.
You must check you syllabus as soon as you have access to your online course room. The name of the proctored exam and exam dates should be listed on the course syllabus and/or course calendar. If you are not clear, the contact (email) your instructor immediately for an answer.
NOTE: COMP 1000 courses do not require a proctored assignment or exam.
Find an approved proctor.
If the student uses an approved proctor, the student must find the proctor and have this person approved within the first two-weeks of the term. The student must comply with any payment schedule that may be required by the approved proctor and/or testing center. The student must schedule the exam date and time with the proctor in advance of the testing schedule provided by the online instructor.
Who can serve as an approved proctor?
A proctor must have internet access for the student, printer, scanner, and or a fax machine if necessary.
NOTE: The student may be charged a fee by the proctor/proctor site.
How do I schedule my proctored exam(s)?
