Illinois Proctor Policy: The State of Illinois requires that the Course Final Exam for this course be Proctored. In order to successfully complete this course, students must take and score a minimum of 70% on a proctored final examination administered in an educational facility by an employee of the educational facility. Complete information on finding a proctor is included in your course materials. We must verify each proctor that is reported. If you do not have a proctor when you test, you will have to take the test again with a proctor present. Generally, public libraries do not charge to proctor exams, while most universities, colleges and learning centers will charge anywhere from $5 - $100. You are responsible for any proctoring fees associated with having your final exam proctored.
IMPORTANT: If you are taking CE courses, you must pass one of the two available exams in the presence of a proctor, to complete your course and receive a completion certificate. If you fail the first exam, you must take the second available exam within 30 days. If you do not pass either one of the two available final exams, Illinois law requires that you retake your course.
