Remote Site Online Course Testing

Remote online course students (students who need to take their proctored test outside of the Jacksonville area) will also sign-up for their exams through their blackboard account by selecting the Tools section in their online course and clicking on the Smarter Proctoring Icon. 
Students who are unable to locate a proctor through SmarterProctoring may use the following method:

To secure a proctor outside of SmarterProctoring, students will need to provide an Online Remote Site Proctor Approval Form to the Open Campus Assessment Services. It is strongly recommended that a completed form be sent to the Open Campus Assessment Services at least two weeks in advance of your desired test date.
