Off Campus Proctor Request
Humber College offers different proctoring options to those students who are in an online course and unable to write the final exam under their instructor’s direct supervision (on-campus).
This option is only for students who are more than 100 km away from Humber College's North campus. Requests should be submitted 4 weeks before your final exam date to allow for processing.
- Please ensure that you have secured/contacted a proctor and collected all the necessary information to properly complete the form.
- The Off campus proctor MUST be a university or college and MUST have a business email address. Personal emails are not acceptable.
- Off campus proctoring fees might apply and are the responsibility of the student, this includes having the exam couriered back to Humber if necessary. Fees are determined by the proctoring institution, not Humber College.

Virtual Proctor Request
Requests should be submitted 4 weeks before your final exam date to allow for processing. Students are required to have all technical requirements listed below and fees apply for this service. See below for full information.
With Virtual Proctoring, you can take the exam online from the comfort of your own home or in a secure, isolated, private location. To see how Virtual Proctoring works, please check out the video.
Virtual Proctoring Fees
2 Hour Virtual Proctoring Session - A standard two hour virtual proctoring session will cost $60 CDN. If your exam is completed in less than two hours, you are still responsible for the full $60 charge.
3 Hour Virtual Proctoring Session - A three hour virtual proctoring session will cost $80 CDN. If your exam is completed in less than three hours, you are still responsible for the full $80 charge.
Missed Appointment - Missed your scheduled virtual proctoring exam appointment? A $25 penalty fee for a two hour booked session and a $35 penalty fee for a three hour booked session will apply. If you rebook the virtual proctored exam, you will need to pay the difference for a new session.
Example – Tanya paid $60 for her Thursday 9am virtual proctoring session. Unfortunately, she missed her exam window. Humber College will hold back $25 of her fee. If Tanya wishes to reschedule, she will need to pay an additional $25 to reschedule the exam again. The $35 remaining from her initial payment will be applied to the rebooking. If she does not reschedule, Humber will return the difference (minus the penalty fee).
Left Your Session Abruptly? Had technical difficulties during your session and your virtual proctoring session ended early? Humber College and Examity will review these situations on a case-by-case basis. If the technical difficulties are associated to the virtual proctoring vendor, then no financial penalty will apply. Technical difficulties associated to the student (student tech specs did not meet our minimum requirements, browser add-ons were not turned off) will result in a $25 or $35 (2 hour or 3 hour) “no-show” penalty (similar to the missed appointment penalty). We strongly encourage students to read and meet the minimum technical requirements related to the virtual proctoring process.
Important note: Payment must be received from student before they write their final exam. Exam proctoring fee is non refundable.

Why a Final Exam
In most cases, credit-based online courses have a final exam, which is typically supervised on-campus at Humber College (North Campus). Your instructor will confirm the final exam details in your online course at least 4 weeks before the end of the course.
However, if you cannot come to Humber to write your final exam, the Open Learning Centre (OLC) will be happy to assist you in making the arrangements at another educational institution or through a virtual proctoring option. Please review the two proctoring options in the sections above - Off-Campus proctor request and Virtual Proctor request.
