Proctoring Fees: The WKU DL Testing Centers do not charge a fee; however, the WKU Remote Proctoring Network includes both proctor locations who charge for proctoring services as well as those who do not charge. Students are responsible for payment of any proctoring fees if they choose to use a proctor who charges a fee for this service. Students are also responsible for any additional fees that might be associated with the use of a particular proctoring site, such as parking fees.

Proctoring Fees: We ask that faculty consider placing a statement in their syllabus regarding the possibility of proctor fees for students who need to use a remote proctoring location,such as the following:

Offsite Exam Reservation

Welcome WKU semester-based student who is requesting an offsite (KY, another state, international) proctored exam

You need to follow these two steps:

STEP 1. Schedule your exam time with your chosen proctored site.

Preapproved proctor sites (each of these three links opens in a new window):
in Kentucky      •in the United States & Canada      •Other

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to have your exam proctored at a site not on the list of preapproved proctors (including a site in another country), you will need to make arrangements with a local community college or university.

Other approved supervisory personnel (proctors) include directors of independent study programs, directors of testing or counseling services, directors of admissions, or academic deans. Non-administrative faculty members will not be approved to receive and administer these exams. Students on active duty in military service, or their dependents, may take the examination under the supervision of their base education officer or someone designated by that officer.

To allow time for processing,

  • Please submit your exam request form 10 days before your testing date if you are taking a paper exam.
  • Please submit your exam request form 4 days before your testing date if you are taking a online exam.

Some institutions may charge a fee, so you should ask when you make your arrangements to test at that site. The DL Testing Center at Western Kentucky University does not charge a fee for proctoring WKU students.

If you have additional questions, please contact (270) 745-5122 or email us at dltesting@wku.edu.

STEP 2. Fill out the Examination Request Form.

You should receive email confirmation within 72 hours of your request. Be sure to set your email spam blocker or filter to allow messages to come from dltesting@wku.edu.

Please remember that if you are taking a paper exam at a remote location your exam will be sent via UPS to the exam center you request, so you must make your request at least ten days prior to your exam date. Exams are mailed back to our office via a prepaid envelope; if you would like for it to reach us faster, we recommend you take an express mail or overnight paid package with you to the examination center.

Be prepared to show a valid photo ID prior to taking your exam at any proctored location.

International testers should be aware that a testing questionnaire will be sent to your requested site before approval.

If you have any questions, please call our office at (270) 745-5122 or email us at dltesting@wku.edu.
