If you wish to have your exam proctored at a site not on the pre-approved proctors lists (including a site in another country), it is a possibility. You will need to make arrangements with an individual who falls under the eligible proctors list, which can be found under 'Register for an exam at another location.' 

If you cannot find a proctor in your area, please call 270-745-2953 or email dltesting@wku.edu and our staff will be happy to help you.
