Proctored Exams

Proctored Exams

The University of Atlanta requires proctors to monitor final exams for all degree programs. As a student, it is your responsibility to select an individual who will be available to proctor your final exams. Once this person is approved, he/she will be your designated proctor for the duration of your degree program. Your proctor will be asked to complete and submit a Proctor Application and Agreement. This information will be maintained by the University, as part of the academic file, for the duration of your enrollment. In the event you need to change proctors during the enrollment period, a new Proctor Application and Agreement should be submitted to University administration.

How do I select a Proctor?
Acceptable proctors include school teachers and principals, librarians, clergy members, human resources officers and workplace supervisors. A proctor should hold a position of integrity. Family members or friends cannot act as proctors. Students must select a trusted individual who will be available to proctor exams as needed by the students' own course schedule. This individual should be able to meet (at a minimum) the following guidelines:

  1. The Proctor should have access to internet and email in order to access messages and/or files from the University
  2. The Proctor should live in close proximity to the student and be able to monitor the exam (without interruption) in an area which is free from distraction. The exam site and time should be decided by the student and the Proctor in order to ensure that there will be ample opportunity for successful completion of the exam.
  3. The Proctor must be comfortable in a position of authority and be able to ensure that the integrity of the examination process is maintained.

Message from the Administrative Board

To all current and prospective students:

As part of our efforts to combat fraudulent activities perpetrated against the University of Atlanta and its student body, please be advised of the following:

1. The UofA only uses official channels in all communications with students. As such, we will never phone you except in an emergency situation and even then, by prior arrangement. The UofA does not utilize social media of any description to contact its students. Specifically, we do not use media such as Whatsapp, IMO or any other SMS platform to contact students.

2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call

6. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of any suspicious activity, please, do not become a victim. Instead, hang up and dial the Chamblee Police station or report the matter to a special Crime Hotline at the UofA. The number is 630 800 2139.

Remember, we all have a duty to protect ourselves. Do not become a victim. Do not allow criminal activities to flourish at your expense. The UofA takes all such activities serious and will take steps to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay safe.
