Exam Information
Proctor Information

LSU IDL courses have two or three proctored exams. If you are unable to take your exams at LSU IDL offices, you must identify a proctor to administer your exams, and submit information about the proctor to LSU IDL for approval. The information LSU IDL must have for your proctor is name, title, institution, office address, phone number, and email address. You may submit your proctor information using the online Enrolled Students Proctor Form below.

OVERSEAS STUDENTS: DO NOT use the online system to view/update/submit your proctor information. Instead, e-mail us at Include your name, your e-mail address, the enrollment number(s) and course(s) for which you are assigning the proctor, and the proctor's name, title, department, institution, mailing address, and telephone number.

STUDENTS IN THE MILITARY: Military personnel in the United States must make arrangements to test with their education offices or with local accredited college testing offices (see Out-of-State Residents, below). Deployed military personnel must work with their unitís education officer regarding testing arrangements.

LOUISIANA RESIDENTS: If you live in Louisiana and are enrolled in a college-level Independent and Distance Learning course, you must take your examination at one of these approved testing centers, or at the LSU Office of Independent and Distance Learning in Baton Rouge.

OUT-OF-STATE RESIDENTS: Check first to see if a pre-approved exam proctor is listed for your area by clicking here. If there is no proctor listed for your area, most colleges have established testing centers which administer independent study exams.

Contact the testing or assessment center at the accredited post-secondary institution you attend, or which is nearby. You may also arrange for testing at any University Continuing Education Association-member Independent Study department. If your institution has no testing office, please ask your academic counselor for the location of testing services on your campus. If no testing center exists, you may request approval for a full-time faculty member or administrator of an academic unit of a local college or university that is regionally accredited, or an ALA-accredited librarian at an academic or public library. We cannot approve persons who work part-time or as adjuncts or graduate students at a college or university; nor can we approve co-workers, personal friends, relatives, tutors, neighbors, personal advisors, pastors, employers, schoolteachers or administrators (elementary, middle, high school), any person associated with the athletic department or sports program of a college, university, or high school, or anyone with a potential conflict of interest. An exam must be sent to the academic work address of the proctor. Exams may not be sent to any personís home, to a primary or secondary school, a place of worship, or a private business.


A studentís exam is mailed to his or her proctor. Exams may be mailed only to institutions, not personal addresses. The proctor handles the exam according to the LSU IDL exam administration policies and procedures. Once the student has completed the exam in accordance with the directions and under the supervision of the proctor, the proctor will mail back all exam materials, including the exam questions and the signed cover sheet, to Independent and Distance Learning. A business reply exam return envelope is provided for testing locations in the United States.

Proctors have a responsibility to facilitate fairness and academic integrity for the exams they administer.

After you arrange for a proctor to administer your exams, according to the regulations above, send us the required information via the Proctor Information Form.
