Resources for Distance Students
To ensure your success, the Office of Distance Education provides students with a number of resources available both on and off campus.
Students are responsible for finding a qualified proctor to administer each exam. The proctor must be a teacher, professor, or administrator in a nearby secondary school, college, university, or testing center. In some instances, a professional employment supervisor may also serve as a proctor, with the instructor’s permission. For assistance finding a proctor, students can contact a guidance counselor, an academic advisor, the dean of students, or the registrar’s office of a nearby college, university, high school, or local testing center. The Consortium of College Testing Centers is an organization that has testing centers across the country and abroad that provide proctoring services to distance students near their homes. Emporia State University is a member of this consortium. Centers are located in 44 states and Canada. Any fees for proctoring at a specific site selected by the student are the student’s responsibility. Students must submit their proctor information to the ESU Distance Education Office no later than a week before the campus exam.
Emporia State University has been approved to join the Midwestern State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (M-SARA).
